St. Louis of France

St. Louis is one of my favorite Saints. Something about the fact that he was a King and yet spent so much of his life seeking God and trying to reform the country into a better place. I wish we had more politicians today who put Christian values first and try to reform our state into something God would be pleased with - something that loves and respects everyone in society.

I admire St. Louis as well, not only because he was a saintly king, but also a saintly husband and father. At times it's easy to look at all of the great saints who were priests or other consecrated religious that we overlook the many saintly laymen and women who were married and had families.
