The saints ‘next door'

“Let us note not only those who are canonized but also the saints ‘next door,’ so to speak, those who, by the grace of God, strive to practice the Gospel in their everyday lives. Among these saints we also find ourselves, perhaps someone in our family, or among friends and acquaintances. We must be grateful for them, and above all we must be grateful to God who has given them to us, putting them close to us as living and contagious examples of the way to live and die in fidelity to the Lord Jesus and his Gospel.” — Pope Francis
