Fr. Josiah Trenham
St. John of Sinai in his Ladder of Divine Ascent writes that the lives of the Saints arouse us to emulation of their courage, and lead us to the virtue of humility and compunction. Contemporary Saints are particularly important since they acquired their love for God and holiness in the midst of our current milieu, and demonstrate that spiritual acquisition is possible even in our own troubled times.
