Message Letters from the Saints

My name is David Ward, and I have always been a big fan of real letters delivered to the mailbox. I remember as a child getting so excited to receive mail addressed to me. Magazines. Free things I had written for. Sometimes it was a card. Other times, it was an actual letter. It was a thrill to open up a card or letter and read the contents. As I grew older, I corresponded with friends of mine. And just like when I was younger, it was fun to open their letters.

I am also a convert to the Catholic Church who through my journey of faith has been guided and helped by many saints. Every step of the way before I entered the Church in 2001 and since then, I have grown in my devotion to our brothers and sisters in Heaven who are cheering us on. I have been able to understand that there is so much we can learn from the saints and that they are a great source of encouragement.

Starting with my reading the letters of St. Ignatius of Antioch, who lived in the First Century, I have been helped by the writings of the saints. I am thrilled to be able to share the powerful writing of the saints through actual letters which they wrote. Just as their writings have changed me, I know that the letters of the saints can make a difference in your family’s and your life and faith.
