Joe Durepos, author of A Still More Excellent Way- How Saint Paul Points Us to Jesus, is a friend and colleague who recently gave a powerful presentation on St. Paul to the assembled staff here at the Press. In concluding, he talked about his long commute to and from work (bus, train and the “El”) and how sometimes he is aware that “Saint Paul is by my side.” He believes that not only can we get to know the saints, but that they get to know us, too.
It got me wondering about which saints are by my side as I go through my daily routine. I can think of quite a few and some of them have not been officially canonized, but they are my heroines and heros. Who are the saints who accompany you each day?
