What is a Saint?

Scripture reading

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works. and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
–Matthew 5:16

Thought of the Day

There is an old story about a little boy who attended a church that had beautiful stained glass windows. One day he asked his mother to tell him who were in the windows. She told him they were St. Matthew, St. Mark, St. Luke, and St. John. A couple of weeks later he was showing off to his friends by naming each window. Before he finished, one of them, asked, “What is a saint?” The little boy thought a moment and replied, “A saint is a person the light shines through.” Pretty good description, I think.
So who are the saints in your life that the light of Christ Jesus shines through to you? Who are you a saint to?


Father, You are the light of the world. Use me. Amen.
