Description More Information
 
As a child, Jean Lamy and his family did three things every evening: pray the Rosary, read a chapter from the Imitation of Christ and read the life of the saint for the day from the Lives of the Saints.

He was greatly devoted to Our Lady and carried a small statue of Her wherever he went. He worked hard, and, even though setbacks occurred, he was able to enter the seminary at the age of twenty-three and commended his future work to the Blessed Virgin. Our Lady appeared to him and told him of the coming of World War I and the causes. Most people did not believe him until the war came to France.

Reading this story can encourage us to follow in the footsteps of Father Jean Lamy by learning how to accept challenges no matter how difficult and how to live our lives so that we may receive the graces we need to reach our true home in Heaven.
