Footsteps of Light & Perils of Darkness: A Journey into the Faith

Catholics: Born to Change the World


Here’s the thing about Catholics: we were born to be extraordinary, and to change the world. Now I am not saying that Catholics are some kind of embryonic super-race;  “insta-saints” with genes of genetic gold and hearts of pure perfection. Truth be told, many of the greatest Catholics to walk the face of this earth […]
