SAINTS IN AUGUST

Updated: Aug 8, 2020

Saints are human like us, experiencing joys and sorrows, hopes and fears, happiness and suffering. They strived to grow in faith, to be faithful to the Lord, to love and to serve others. Saints are not perfect or superhuman, but they are our heroes, and can teach us what it means to be a Christian in good days and bad.


Starting from August 7, EWTN will offer a series on six saints as follows.
