About the St. Dominic Savio Series...

I was just wondering if anyone was following with interest the series on St. Dominic Savio.

Journeying through the lives of the saints is not only adventurous, but gives us ideas on how we should approach our faith. So much namby-pamby is passed off as Catholicism and yet, it does not make saints. The theme with saints is repeated over and again:

Eucharistic Devotion
Marian Devotion
Virtue driven living
Mortification & Sacrifice
Deep prayer life

On that last issue, I have not posted on it, but the book does describe how simple Dominic dressed and kept his hair. He did not burden himself with fashion. Contrast that with today's emphasis on designer clothes and fashions that change almost weekly.

The list goes on.
