Dear Family of Mary!
 
"Dear children! Also today, my prayer is for all of you, especially for all those who have become hard of heart to my call. You are living in the days of grace and are not conscious of the gifts which God is giving to you through my presence. Little children, decide also today for holiness and take the example of the saints of this time and you will see that holiness is a reality for all of you. Rejoice in the love, little children, that in the eyes of God you are unrepeatable and irreplaceable, because you are God´s joy in this world. Witness peace, prayer and love. Thank you for having responded to my call." (October 25, 2015)
 
"Little children, decide also today for holiness and take the example of the saints of this time and you will see that holiness is a reality for all of you."
 
We are drawing near to the Solemnity of All Saints! Our Lady tells us to take the example of the saints of this time. I am not sure to which saints she is referring. But I found it very interesting to look at the list of recently canonized saints. I don't know most of them, but those I do know are amazing people.
 
Here is a sampling of the recently canonized saints of the Catholic Church:
 
Under St. John Paul:
 
Maximillian Kolbe (10/10/82)
Leopold Mandic (10/16/83)
103 Korean Martyrs (05/06/84)
Andrew Dung-Lac (06/19/88)
Rose Philippine Duchesne (07/03/88)
Claude de la Colombiere ( 05/31/92)
Teresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein) (10/11/98)
Maria Faustina Kowalska (04/30/2000)
Josephine Bakhita (10/01/2000)
Pio of Pietrelcina (Padre Pio) ((06/16/02)
Josemaria Escriva ((10/06/02)
Gianna Berretta Molla ((05/16/04)
 
(St. John Paul II canonized 110 saints during his pontificate!)
 
Under Pope Benedict XVI:
 
Fr. Damien (10/11/09)
Andre Bessette (10/17/10)
Mary MacKillop (10/17/10)
Stanislaw Kzimierczyk (10/17/10)
Hildegard of Bingen (05/10/12)
Kateri Tekakwitha (10/21/12)
 
(Pope Benedict canonized 45 saints during his pontificate!)
 
Under Pope Francis:
Angela of Foligno (10/09/13)
Peter Faber (12/17/13)
Pope John XXIII (04/27/14)
Pope John Paul II (04/27/14)
Junipero Serra (09/23/15)
Louis and Zellie Martin (10/18/15)
 
Pope Francis has canonized 26 saints so far!
 
Just this small sampling of the saints of this time is enough to give us great hope, and a great example for holiness. We have been gifted with powerful saints for our day. They are our intercessors in heaven, cheering us on from above. They want us all to succeed and join them in heaven for eternity. Let's stay close to them and imitate them, with the joy of knowing that if we do, we will one day meet them in heaven!!
 
In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
