The question of whether John-Paul II will be officially proclaimed a Saint by the Catholic church makes some headlines.

But there are less visible figures that might very well be saints without many knowing it. There was an extraordinary testimony in Famille Chrétienne by the parents of Jeanne-Marie Kegelin, a young girl who was savagely murdered. Two things make the testimony remarkable: the beautiful faith of this family despite their tragic loss, and the very simple, very short, yet very powerful prayers that this young girl had written shortly before her death, almost as if she was preparing for it.

As the trial of the murderer approaches, I invite all of you to pray for this family, for this young girl, and, as the family requested it, for the murderer and accomplices.
