Being daring
It's incredible when you think how the early saints had to deal with rebukes, persecution, and suffering because they had the faith to believe in a Christian God. They dared to pursue their faith and their vocations. Moms all over the world are daring when they take that step to welcome a child into the family, or when they stand for what is right. We are blessed with a myriad of holy women to call on for guidance and strength when times get tough -- saints like Sts. Perpetua and Felicity, St. Zoe of Rome, St. Frances of Rome, and St. Elizabeth of Hungary.
