9 Saints that Were Superheroes in Their Free Time (And Their Great Captain!)

Article begins after advertisement:

These days, the most popular movies often involve superheroes (Ironman, Captain America, etc.). They show us a series of admirable values such as nobility, courage, and integrity. We watch as hundreds of thousands of children fill the movie theaters to watch their idols beat the bad guys and save the world.

But what if we try to teach them about the best heroes of all? They don’t use a disguise, nor do they have a cape. The can’t fly or walk through walls. In fact, their greatest strength is nothing other than their capacity for an almost infinite love for others.

To a child’s eye – and let’s admit that to ours as well – can be pretty darn cool: the holy stigmata, the capacity to be in two places at the same time, levitate and others.
