Letters From a Young Catholic

My reflections as a Catholic young adult passionate about the Faith, seeking to grow in knowledge and understanding of God and discerning the will of the Lord in my life.

Servant of God Claire de Castelbajac

I had never heard about Claire de Castelbajac until tonight when I read about her on the Shrine of the Holy Whapping.

"Being a saint means loving the ordinary things of life for God, with God and with His divine grace and strength."
- Claire de Castelbajac

She is a young saint of the twentieth century. She was twenty-two when she died. . . that's only a year older than I am now. God in his infinite wisdom though knows I need much more than twenty-two years if I'm ever to be a saint . . .
