Saints are everywhere
When I was at Oakwood, someone told me that she never fails to read Robert Ellsberg's "All Saints: Daily Reflections on Saints, Prophets, and Witnesses For Our Time"; I received it in the mail today and see that it is really not a new book as it won the 1998 Christopher Award. One of the tributes on the back cover is from Joan Chittister; she says, "This book should be in every home, on every shelf, in every library. It raises the standards of life."
It looks as if I shall be reading it each day as it is inspiring to see the many different kinds of saints or witnesses to Christ that have given us an example of how to follow Jesus in our daily lives. I guess we all have some living saints around us that also give us inspiration in the great adventure we are living. Saints are really everywhere when we are looking for them. Some are fat, some are thin; some brilliant, others rather dull, but all are in love with God and living to please God!
