    For many young women, the saints are their models to live a life in the grace of GOD, though, very difficult it maybe for the world is filled with so much evil temptation. St. Teresa of Los Andes, St. Gemma Galgani, St. Therese Martin, Blessed Elizabeth Catez and many young saints are the moving light to guide the youths of today to reach to heaven because it is our true home.
