If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you know that I love the saints.Â I find it very comforting to know that I have a heavenly posse of wildly diverse people who will always pray for me and my unique little needs. Â And I want my boys to love the saints just as much as I do.
But I know from personal experience that when you are a kid, it is very easy for the saints to seem — how shall I put this? –Â really kinda creepy.
I go into detail in my new article Spooky Saints No More: Learning to love, not fear, the people in the stained glass windows.
My special picture of St. Raphael, who is not creepy at all.
