Catholic saints and images of faith
Angel standing BW Karlsruhe (by Pierre the III)
(Col 1:24) - "Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I complete what is lacking in Christ's afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church, of which I became a minister according to the divine office which was given to me for you, to make the work of God fully known, the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now made manifest to his saints."
Jesus Christ - Messiah (Hebrew-Aramaic ישוע (Yeshua )
The young virgin Mary and her cousin Elizabeth
Saint Jerome heavily influenced this saint to become a bride of Christ. Like Saint Therese of Lisieux, Teresa of Avila entered the Carmelite Order. Like Teresa, I often feel great sorrow that I don't love God more... She made a firm amendment to live for Jesus in all that she did. She is a great leader, true lover of Jesus and His Church and the first woman Doctor of the Church. [feast day - Oct 15]
