The Definition of a Saint

For the month of November during morning prayer, teachers and faculty shared stories of the lives of saints for reflection. To conclude this month's reflection, Religion Teacher, Patrick Welsch shared what it means to be a saint:

As we’ve heard about the lives of the saints this past month, it can be tempting to dismiss them as being too perfect, too far away, or in some ways inauthentic. And if we feel this way, it may be a sign that we are missing a key point. We are not asked to be these Saints. Instead we are asked to be our authentic selves, to fulfill our potential as much as these Saints have fulfilled theirs.
