The ordinary people you encounter might be shocked to be called “saints,” but they do good, quietly and unassumingly. A special day is set aside to honor those of us with unknown names, whose ordinary fidelity goes unrecorded. Those who are deceased accompany us still, and one day we will join their company in heaven.
Creator God, you always sent saints with the gifts
that corresponded to the needs of their day.
Today, we have crying needs.
Send us your saints!
