I just wanted to throw something in here that seems to need clarification. I believe that the OP was asking for “normal” meaning those who are not members of religious orders or secular priests. If I’m mistaken, I ask the OP for correction.
If I’m correct, the OP does not mean that saints do not live heoric lives. Just that he/she wants to know about those who are not in religious orders or secular clergy. Therefore, those who were outside the conventual life, but were members of religious orders would not fit the bill.
For example, Matt Talbot, the Martins, Thomas More and someone else who was mentioned earlier were all Franciscans. They lived according to a rule of life. They belonged to a religious family. They did make vows in that family. Canonically, they are not part of the main body of the faithful. They are part of a religious family and they found their holiness and sanctity by observing what they had vowed in that family. Other examples would be from the Dominican family: Catherine of Siena, Martin de Porres, Rose of Lima, Pierre Giogio Frassati. They were all professed Dominicans. They are seculars, but they are not part of the main body of the fiathful in the canonical sense.
However, I have to say. These men and women are wonderful examples of how to live the Gospel, within a particular religious family, while remaining in the secular world to promote the spirit and love of that family. This is what these saints and blesseds did. This is very heoric and a very hard life.
