The greatest sign of the follower of Jesus Christ is love. The greatest lovers are the saints! St. Alberto Hurtado – a Chilean Saint – died at the age of 51 of cancer. His motto: “There are two places to rest, the graveyard and Heaven!” As death approached he said “This night the Blessed Virgin Mary will come and take me to Heaven”.
