Each saint finds in Christ the answer to the question life poses, and the Friend of their hearts, and follows Him according to their unique personality and quirks, gifts and shortcomings, loving and serving a particular people in a chosen location to meet a specific need, as God ordained for that moment in history. These female saints recognized that they had gifts to give, and had been entrusted with a divine task they alone could fulfill. In recognizing their own limitations, they turned to the Lord to supply everything.
God knows the desires of our hearts and He knows they are infinite. We are not satisfied by the things of this world…even the best things. We are always looking for more, hoping for more, expecting more. Turn to the witness of these courageous lovers we call saints, holy women whose hearts were set on the One thing necessary, and give God permission to realize the greatest desires of your heart.
