In Re: Saints

Here is a quote from the book, St. Charles of Sezze: An Autobiograpy: “[There is] the opinion, quite common among religious people, that saints are born saints, that they are privileged right from their first appearance on this earth. This is not so. Saints become saints in the usual way, due to the generous fidelity of their correspondence to divine grace. They had to fight just as we do, and more so, against their passions, the world and the devil.”

No excuse, is there, for us to not be saints. Sainthood is for everyone. The part we don’t like is the struggle.
