All things are possible with God (don't remember the verse.) Who knows what the saints were striving for (especially once sainthood became more established in the Church.
Did you ever listen to Mother Angelica? She ended almost every show saying - "We are all called to be saints - don't miss the opportunity!" with her wonderful smile. I think this is the question being asked in this forum. And, from things you have posted - kind acts you have done for your children, etc., I would suspect (that although you might not say it that way) that you are striving to be a saint .
I don't think women here are presuming they will become a saint, just that they are striving toward that by how they live their lives, etc.
Would love to hear if any men here are striving to be saints (or do we need to start another thread for the men)?
Well.. It's not a conscious striving and I'm uncomfortable with someone who has that expectation of me.. I would run from a man who suggested such a thing of me because I see that as very unrealistic. I have read Mother Angelica's bio book and have seen her show.. She is much closer to sainthood than I would ever think to be.
