5 Saints You’ve Probably Never Heard Of, But Should Get To Know

by Feasts and Solemnities, History of the Church, Saints

There are a few Saints that most Catholics seem to love. St. John Paul II, St. Therese the Little Flower, St. Anthony are usually at the top of everyone’s list and with good reason! These Saints are powerhouses of love, virtue, and holiness. Of course, I adore these Saints just like you do, but I thought it would be fun to get to know some of our lesser-known Saints on All Saints Day. Enjoy this list and let me know who your favorite saint is!

“Love Mary!… She is loveable, faithful, constant. She will never let herself be outdone in love, but will ever remain supreme. If you are in danger, she will hasten to free you. If you are troubled, she will console you. If you are sick, she will bring you relief. If you are in need, she will help you. She does not look to see what kind of person you have been. She simply comes to a heart that wants to love her. She comes quickly and opens her merciful heart to you, embraces you and consoles and serves you.” – St. Gabriel
