While it's true that the saints were certainly holy, they struggled to become virtuous. They wrestled with temptations and sins, just like you do. They had problems with their in-laws, worries about finances, and sorrow over wayward children. These holy witnesses will guide you on your own journey. They have preceded you on the path, navigated it successfully, and are now in heaven for all eternity. You'll learn concrete ways you can live the virtues, just like they did.
