Vatican II reaffirmed the call of all the baptized to live lives
of virtue and holiness. For holiness is not only the realm of
religious and priests but of all the baptized.
By virtue of baptism, all the laity share in the holiness of
Christ and thus share the responsibility of showing forth that
holiness to the world.
Featured are some of the laity that have heeded their baptismal
call to be shining beacons of the transforming grace of Christ
to the world.
May they inspire you with their lives of heroic sanctity and
enable you by their prayers to follow Christ more faithfully in
your daily life.
