Father Wesley's Saints

Here are the five Saints Father Wesley picked:

St. Elizabeth of Hungary

St. Manuel Morales

St. Gianna Molla

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton

Fr. Emil Kapaun (Not yet a Saint, but on the way. And he's from Kansas!)

I win! St. Elizabeth Ann Seton was on both of our lists, and I picked Juan Diego, a Mexican Saint, and Father Wesley picked St. Manuel Morales, a Mexican Saint, so surely that's half a point.

It was fun. I liked these Saints because they were just regular people who lived their faith.

If you go to the Kapaun Mt. Carmel High School site, they have a bunch more info about Emil Kapaun. One of my favorites is Richard Wurmbrand, not canonized because he is not a Roman Catholic. He lived an amazing life. One of my regrets is that though he lived in Bartlesville, we didn't meet him before he died. Have a blessed Lent.
