IN THE LIGHT OF FAITH | Credible witnesses — like Blessed Solanus Casey — inspire holiness

Pope Francis stated in the preparatory document for the upcoming synod on "young people, faith and vocational discernment" that we need to see credible witnesses in order to be inspired to be holy.

Blessed Father Solanus Casey was an ordinary man who lived an extraordinary life. He was beatified Nov. 18 in Detroit. The beatification Mass perfectly reflected this ordinary man who truly lived an extraordinary life.

While some people may not have heard of Father Solanus prior to this weekend, I was raised with a devotion to him. Prayers to Blessed Solanus were commonplace in my family.
