We look to our saints as great guides to living the Gospel Life, that Jesus calls us to with great mercy, grace, and love. We would like to highlight some of the saints over the past 2,000 years who exemplify the virtue of mercy. You will find beautiful and inspiring stories in their lives, and can pray for their intercession when you need them in your life. We will be adding to this list as the Jubilee Year of Mercy Progresses.
- St. Faustina Kowalska, patron saint of Mercy
- St. Maria Goretti
- St. Margaret of Cortona
- Bl. Teresa of Calcutta (canonization aniticipated on Sept. 5th, 2016 during the Jubilee Year of Mercy)
