All Saints Day • St. Philip Neri was called the "Second Apostle of Rome." Most people in Rome in the 1500's were infatuated with worldly pleasures and the pursuit of power, fame, and wealth. They had decided being a Christian was boring. But there was one little problem: even though they had all grown up Catholic, most people had never met an actual Christian. Philip showed people that living for Christ was the most exciting adventure and the most fulfilling life.
Nowadays, most people have decided that Christianity is boring. They would much rather spend their energy on other things. But have they ever really met a Christian?
