Lives of the Saints
with Tom Shrewsbury
These reflections will introduce you to Saints throughout the ages!
Learn about Our Lady, St Michael, The Holy Doctors, and Bishops. Learn about the Founders of Religious Orders, Missionaries, and the Husbands and Wives that have become Catholic Saints!
Our Heavenly family is waiting for us to call on them for help.
Be inspired by their example and strengthened by their intercession!
