Saints like St.Thérèse of the Child Jesus and St Francis of Assisi are saints who define our church as a whole and so the universal church celebrates their feasts to learn how the Spirit forms the church. They have a universal meaning.
Saints and blesseds like Blessed Francis Seelos and Blessed Marie Rose Durocher, who are recalled this week, are important figures in the church of North America. We remember them as guides to the history of our local church.
