Every nov 1st the heavens honour all the saints who have graced the earth and became role models for the rest of us.
Yesterday when I attended mass, Father Brian asked us to think about one saint that we look up to and model our lives after.
Immediately I thought of St Stephen and St Luke.
St Stephen was stoned because everyone was against him. I thought of him because I want to be brave like him, to be bold enough to stand up for what’s right and what I believe in. More often than not I find myself blindly following popular opinions and letting others sway me from my own thoughts.
St Luke was a practicing physician and that is ultimately what I aspire to be.
*Side note: Really Glad I finally turned up for mass today. I even went for the event after which was quite surprising to my friends. But praise the lord 🙂
