As you read the harrowing times the saints endured—war, poverty, plague, scandal, persecution, heresy, and schism—you will realize the challenges we face today are really no different from what these heroes of faith endured hundreds and even thousands of years ago.
They came from all walks of life: rich and poor, loved and abandoned, converts and reverts, ordained and laity, workers and thinkers, farmers and missionaries, soldiers and martyrs, the very old and the very young. But the one thing they had in common was how they exercised their faith in the midst of adversity and challenging circumstances. Their lives are a testament to the transformative power of faith, and they provide us with a roadmap for reclaiming our society for Jesus Christ.
The Saint Challenge turns the witness of their fascinating lives into inspiration toward your personal growth in holiness.
