12 Quotes from saints to kick off 2021 with hope and faith in your heart



Cerith Gardiner - published on 01/05/21

These holy men and women put everything into perspective.

If you look at news from 2020, you’ll see lots of recurring negative words, such as “uncertain,” “difficult,” “worrying,” and “stressful” — a myriad of words that sum up a year that we’re glad to see the back of.

Thankfully, the real beauty of our faith is that we can lean on God to guide us through our journey on earth, which is always uncertain — pandemic or not! We put our lives in God’s hands and know that He will guide us home to Him eventually.
