Surround Yourself With Extraordinary!!

Value the friendship of the saints. 

Never forget that you have so many friends and intercessors in heaven! Talk to them. They are fantastic  teachers and counselors. 

Invite them for a visit. SURROUND YOURSELF WITH THEM. You'll never be lonely, or without help. Ever. :>)
Find ways to tap into more and more of the extraordinary and at times unfathomable supernatural experiences that come from embracing the majestic full expression of your Catholic faith. Strive to make it your way of life to accomplish God's most perfect will.  

Imitate the Saints, learn from them, be empowered by them!  Be humble, grow, learn, and serve, always loving in greater measure.   
Eat lunch with the Franciscans: invite St. Francis and St. Anthony. Ask Servant of God, Fr. John A. Hardon, S.J. to help you learn your faith, so you can defend it and never take it for granted. 

Say the Rosary with St. John Bosco and his mother while having breakfast! In a jam? Ask St. Jude and St. Rita to come to the rescue. Take a quiet walk with Christ Himself. Ask, and heaven will not refuse!

Invite St. John of the Cross into your dark night, ask Mother Teresa and St. Andre Bessette to help you make your life a miracle, keep Jesus company in prison, care for the sick with St. Guiseppe Moscati, go see a movie with our Blessed Mother!! Arrive after the previews so our Lady doesn't have to watch those. ;>)

Who are your favorite saints?  Which saints have reached out to you to lend a helping hand?  Who is  hoping at this very moment to become your newest friend and intercessor?  

God wants YOU to become a saint, too!  Hanging out with other saints is a great way to become one. 

Always remember that all the saints are pro-life, because they lived, loved, and served in imitation of Christ.   

God, the Creator of Life, is pro-life.  Are you?
