"We need heralds of the Gospel who are experts in humanity, who know the depths of the heart of many today, who share in his hopes and joys, his worries and his sadness, and at the same time are contemplatives, in love with God. For this, new saints are needed."
-St. John Paul II
God has given us life at this time to be the "new saints" and the "new evangelizers" who will proclaim His love to the world.
How is God calling you to fulfill this very mission in your own life?
This young Woman of Grace isn't shy about sharing her enthusiasm for the new Young Women of Grace program. She is bubbling over with excitement about the course and what a difference it is making in her life. Let us keep all of these precious young women in our prayers as they open their hearts and minds to this life-changing - and very counter-cultural - message.
