We are all called to be saints.

1 - Put God first.
2 - Know His wisdom.
3 - Apply it in our lives.
4 - Don't listen to the temptations of the world.
5 - Go to confession if you do listen.


"Let us then not be ashamed to confess the Crucified."
-- St. Cyril of Jerusalem, in his "Catecheses" (xiii, 36)

The path to sainthood is strewn with obstacles. Do we despise people because they worship in a temple or mosque, or not at all? Do we enthusiastically support unnecessary wars because well, our defense contractors need the work? Do we fail to speak up when we witness injustice, no matter who is the oppressor? Are we silent when acquaintances ridicule our faith, the pro-life movement?
It's a 24/7 struggle. I've got a better chance of winning the Powerball jackpot laughing than ever reaching sainthood, but it's a noble quest! Harp

You wanna bet on that?

(I wonder if it is feasibly mathematical to suggest that the postulate-held-in-faith of infinity of mercy suggests that each of us has a better chance of sainthood ... even a defence contractor who is enjoying some unnecessary work.)

Our Lord said it best.Who can do better than this!
Douay-Rheims Bible
He answering, said: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind: and thy neighbour as thyself.

Just remember, Peter,that if you make it to heaven even after a long period in Purgatory, you will be a saint. Maybe not one canonized, honored and celebrated by the Church, but a saint nevertheless.
