St. Anselm of Canterbury Part 4: Model for Holiness

TAN Publisher Conor Gallagher and Fr. Robert Nixon wrap up their examination of St. Anselm of Canterbury with a discussion on how Anselm’s unwavering faith and obedience in trying moments can be a model for holiness we can emulate today.

St. Anselm desired a quiet and monastic life but soon realized he was called to positions of leadership. This is all too familiar for many men and women in their vocation; they find themselves in a place they would not have predicted. Learn how St. Anselm dealt with this and found peace in God’s calling for him.
