Various religious traditions honor those who have gone before us, living exemplary lives of love and service. Let’s celebrate the feasts of St. Nicholas, the saint behind Santa Claus (Dec. 6) and St. Ambrose (Dec. 7) and explore the importance of spiritual heroes in our lives today. Who are your spiritual heroes?
