Everyday Saints

On Sunday, I was fortunate enough to attend the Students for Life of America conference in Bethesda , Maryland. I couldn’t help but be inspired by one of the speakers, Stephanie Gray. She was so incredibly eloquent, intelligent, and young. After watching debates between herself and pro-choice advocates on youtube, I was floored by her knowledge of pro-life logic. This woman is undoubtably an everyday Saint.

One thing she said while she was speaking about how to defend your pro-life stance in the real world reminded me of an infinitely important and confoundingly obvious fact. That we must pray to the Holy Spirit to help us in battles of theology and faith. I realized that this woman speaks the way she speaks not only because of her fervent studies and talents of the tongue, but because she relied on the Holy Spirit to help her fight her battles. I am posting a link to a short video about Stephanie below. I would highly suggest checking out more of her videos on youtube because she gives some incredible arguments in defense of the pro-life movement that can hold strong against secular opposition.

HERES THE LINK. PRESS IT. SERIOUSLY. She will blow your mind.

    I believe strongly that a person’s mission in life is to become a Saint. The thing is that to become a Saint you don’t have to do something extraordinary. It’s not something you work for; it’s something you’re SUPPOSED to be. The way I look at it, we were created to be saints, not ordinary people. It’s part of us, a gift the Lord gave us; rather, it’s our own decision to accept His help and with Him, become the Saints we’re supposed to be. In doing so, we are freeing ourselves from the world; we are becoming what we were programmed to be.
