“We need saints without cassocks, without veils – we need saints with jeans and
tennis shoes. We need saints that go to the movies that listen to music, that hang
out with their friends (…) We need saints that drink Coca-Cola, that eat hot dogs,
that surf the internet and that listen to their iPods. We need saints that love the
Eucharist, that are not afraid or embarrassed to eat a pizza or drink a beer with
their friends. We need saints who love the movies, dance, sports, theatre. We
need saints that are open, sociable, normal, happy companions. We need saints
who are in this world and who know how to enjoy the best in this world without
being callous or mundane. We need saints”.”
–Pope Francis

  1. Right here is the right blog for anybody
    who hopes to find out about this topic. You realize a whole lot its almost hard to argue with you (not that
    I actually would want to…HaHa). You definitely put a brand new spin on a topic
    that’s been written about for decades. Wonderful stuff, just wonderful!

  2. Thank you for another excellent post. Where else may anyone get that type of information in such a perfect means of writing?

    I’ve a presentation next week, and I am on the look for such info.
