In addition to his exemplary courage and faith, Saint Adrian teaches us about the monumental power that actions and example have in influencing the thinking and decisions of others. Saint Adrian became a Christian not through reading or hearing fancy sermons and arguments; he became a Christian through witnessing the astounding virtue and faith of other Christians. As Jesus taught, and many saints have since reiterated, Christians are to be known by their example, by how they treat others. What kind of example do you set? Could your life lead others to Jesus? Think about the possibility that, through your actions, you could lead someone to God who, like Saint Adrian, becomes a saint!
Dear Jesus, please help me to be an example of your truth and love. Help others to see you through me.
