Segment 3 – The Leaven of the Saints: Bringing Christ into a Fallen World
“The saints have come from every background, people, and era. They have been rich and poor, healthy and sick, single and married, members of the clergy and of the laity. The Leaven of the Saints groups them according to the kind of Christian witness they have given the world—as martyrs, Fathers and Doctors of the Church, priests and religious, popes and bishops, national heroes, founders of religious orders, married persons, and more. The vastness of this work reveals an important truth: that each saint is a unique individual with a unique mission to grow in the knowledge and love of Christ and to make him better known and loved in the world.”
Dawn Marie Beutner entered the Catholic Church as a young adult and worked as an engineer before becoming a technical writer.
