The Lives of the Saints often seem very romantic and idyllic. However, many of our brothers and sisters who have reached the Communion of Saints have paid dearly for the glory the Lord has bestowed on them.  Join us as we share in the lives of just some of our Heavenly Family who have suffered greatly, sometimes at the hands of their own families orcommunities.
