St. John Paul the II… Making New Friends in Heaven

What is a saint?…Making new friends in heaven

I am always up for making new friends. As a family we have wanted to dive deeper into investigating the life of the saints. To learn more about the lives of holy men and women and to see how God is glorified in their life. I think the best way to do this is one at a time. A sort of cocktail party of saints if you will. So this is the beginning of a series of posts outlining our exploration and discovery of new friends and prayer partners in heaven.

Each post will have historical information, ways to celebrate the feast day, book suggestions, quotes, art, and prayers. I hope that together we can learn more and grow in holiness.

Below is my search for answers about saints.
