What does it look like to be a Catholic saint today? A Vatican conference taking place in Rome this week has been discussing just that.
Pope Francis said Sunday that the Christian life requires concrete commitments and spiritual combat in order to grow in holiness.
The Gospel is more than a nice story – it is the concrete revelation of God’s plan for the world and calls people to holiness, Pope Francis said Sunday.
Pope Francis said Thursday that the often hidden holiness lived out in everyday life is a true light within the Church.
The saints were real people whose strength to face daily challenges came from the grace of Jesus Christ, showing that everyone can be holy, Pope Francis said Friday on the Feast of All Saints Day.
