Who Are the Saints, and How Do We Pray With Them? (feat. Br. Lawrence)

Are you struggling to figure out which saint you should pray to? You feel convicted that you should have a devotion to the saints, but there are just so many to choose from. Are you unsure of where to begin?

Today, Br. Lawrence discusses with Fr. Mark-Mary what devotion to the Saints looks like for a faithful Catholic and how to identify ways to deepen your devotion to particular ones.

Together, they explore intercession, communion, and imitation as fundamental elements in establishing profound relationships with saints who can offer guidance and encouragement from these “spiritual role models.”
