You have friends in High Places
The Saints have been speaking to us, weakly sharing their stories, to enable us to walk our way to the Father. We supplicate they have touched you, as they have us. A portion of the Saints we have expounded on, we needed to expound on them. We felt a tireless gnawing inside to share their stories, their lives.
We have spent right around a lifetime studying about the glories of our Church. We have gone on Pilgrimage in any event once per year since 1976, and some of the time three or four times each year. Furthermore, it has been a superb adventure of confidence. We generally advise youthful couples planning to wed, “First you need to meet the family; in light of the fact that your affection is a piece of an entirety. Her/his life started hundreds of years back, with their families who are here and have gone some time recently.” And so it is with us Catholic Christians. Our family goes back to the season of Jesus our Brother and Mary our Mother. As one goes through our history, they will definitely find our cousins, the Saints who have gone before us, making our profound life what it is today. They stayed the course and we have a Church today!
We have had an affection illicit relationship with Mother Church and every one of her youngsters for as long as thirty years, and it has developed to such an extent, we appetite to meet increasingly of our precursors, the Saints. In the course of recent years, we have lived from journey to journey, studying, preparing, journeying to lands over the oceans to our legacy. When we started our adventure, one excursion developed into another and afterward another; and we were snared.
At a certain point in our lives, Penny and I were driving down to San Diego, California, to approach a few records, back when we were still on the planet. It was a lengthy drive, more than three hours, and we typically invested the energy praying the Rosary. In any case, on this one day, I was to some degree concerned. The greater part of our friends in Westlake Village were buying up land in Southern California. It was a decent investment. We didn’t have any cash to do that, since we spent a large portion of what we had, every year, going on journey.
I said to Penny, “You know, nectar, we’re not putting anything endlessly for a savings for ourselves, or for our grandson. What are we leaving him?” She didn’t answer me. However, that night, after we had finished calling on our records, I swung to Penny, “I realize what we’re giving our grandson, and additionally us and our Church. We’re giving him legacy. These Saints, whose lives we think about, they’re our family. They’re our siblings and sisters in Faith. These are Role Models, whom he can fall back on.”
Going through a world of fond memories, I review how we happened coining the expression “Super Saints.” It started with our teaching First Holy Communion Class at our area in 1975. One day I got the plan to recount the little ones a story every week on the Saint whose Feast Day it was. We took the “S” of the Superman image, and added another huge S to it, and composed it on the slate. At that point we continued to recount the little individuals stories of the Saints. We never thought they gave careful consideration to us or the stories. They generally appeared as though they were not there with us. However, at that point at Parents Nights, their folks would disclose to us how the youngsters had imparted to them about St. Michael, or St. Francis or St. Anthony or one of the many Saints we had examined.
The Super Saints had run over enormous with the little individuals! What’s more, now, very nearly thirty years after the fact, that is the title and idea of our most prevalent TV arrangement on EWTN, Super Saints.
