the saints collection

A collection of episodes on a number of different saints. Get inspired as their examples spur you on as you run your own race to sainthood.

about this collection

The saints glorify the transformative power of the Lord. Throughout the life of the show, Richaél Lucero has sprinkled a few episodes about them into the rotation.

As you listen to these episodes, let yourself be inspired by those who have run the race of holiness before us. Most importantly, take the lessons and wisdom they share. They will help you triumph in your pursuit of a life lived in Christ.

We worship Christ as God’s Son; we love the martyrs as the Lord’s disciples and imitators, and rightly so because of their matchless devotion towards their king and master. May we also be their companions and fellow disciples!

They paint a vivid picture of the Catholic Church after the time of the Apostles. Listen as Richaél Lucero points out some of her favorite parts in these need-to-read Catholic letters.
