With all of today's pressures, here are some worthy saints to help guide our young men.

Being a teen today can be confusing, with challenges at every turn, and peer pressure to be someone you don’t want to be. With this in mind, we’ve come up with some truly inspirational and valiant holy men, whose own struggles are relevant for today’s young men. The intercession and guidance of these saints can be powerful in helping teens navigate their everyday lives, whether it’s being treated unfairly or trying to make the right choice. Each of these holy men, some who are lesser-known but nevertheless awe-inspiring, has something wonderful to offer as our children are confirmed and embark on their own journeys of life.
