As we approach the Solemnity of All Saints (the day we celebrate all the saints in Heaven, known and unknown), I thought it would be interesting to ask you about virtues and saints.
So, my questions are:
1) What is the virtue you believe is most needed in the world today, and what is the virtue you most desire for yourself?
2) Who is your favorite saint/blessed?
Here are my answers:
1) I think that courage is the virtue most needed in the world today, because I believe it is the most lacking. I personally most desire the virtues of humility and service (because they are most lacking in me!!).
2) That's a tough one. My favorite saint has to be the Blessed Virgin Mary, because I believe she has looked out for me (and tried to call me home) since I was a little girl. My other favorites are Blessed Zelie Martin (the mother of St. Therese) and St. Padre Pio. Wait... and St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein). Oh, and how could I forget St. Maximilian Kolbe? Or John Paul the Great? Or St. John the Evangelist? Or St. Teresa of Avila? Ack, I need to stop!! Your turn....
