Ever since the beginning of the Catholic Church, there have been periods of extreme trial and difficulties that have tested the faith of Christians. Yet, in the midst of such dark times, God always provides saints, holy men and women who help the Church remain on course.

As St. Paul wrote in his letter to the Romans, “where sin increased, grace abounded all the more” (Romans 5:20).

This should give us hope, recognizing the providence of God and how he does not leave us as orphans, but continues to guide the members of his Church to truth, beauty and goodness.

Below is a slideshow of five such holy reformers who were sent by God to return the Church to the essence of the Gospel message.
