John, you should know about the saints! They are people who do extraordinary deeds and are recognized for serving God.
That's so cool grandma! I'd love to become one of them someday!

ST. SULPICE SEMINARY
I am so excited. I hope I find safety and security in this place.
The Productive Life
I want to take on a bigger responsibility to serve the Lord. I think I should build schools for the poor to spread His word!
As a child, Saint John Baptist De La Salle would regularly listen to stories about the saints from his grandmother, wherein he first new about God and the Catholic Church.
The Journey Inward
Who wants some of these possessions of mine? I am selling them for a good cause!
St. Sulpice was where St. John Baptist De La Salle spent the happiest times of his life. Here, he spent 18 months wherein he found his foundation for his spiritual life.
The Journey Outward
Saint John Baptist De La Salle then began to build schools to cater to the less fortunate youth.
St. John Baptist De La Salle, as part of his acts of surrender to the Lord, decided to sell his possessions in order to fund his schools for the poor.
St. John Baptist De La Salle, along with Nicholas Vuyart and Gabriel Drolin, had the Heroic Vow, wherein they made a promise to remain together in society even if they would have to beg and live on bread alone.
"In view of which, we promise to do unanimously and with a common consent, whatever we believe in conscience and without any human consideration to be for the greater good of the said Society."
Saint John Baptist De La Salle died at Saint Yon near Rouen on April 7, 1719 when he uttered his last words, showing his dedication to service for the Lord.
I adore, in all things, the will of God in my regard.
