Pat’s faith in Jesus Christ blessed the entire Church. At a worldwide devotional for young adults earlier this year—broadcast from her native St. George, Utah—she offered young adults a simple approach to the religious life: “Please have faith in God, hope that He will help you, and receive the charity that enables Him to work through you to accomplish what only you can do.”
