We have forgotten our mission to become saints and forgotten our story as Catholics. Discover the five steps for choosing the saint within YOU. The world doesn’t need another John Paul II or Mother Teresa; the world needs you! Your ordinary life has an extraordinary purpose.

About Dr. John R. Wood
