Most of us are bound and determined not to be Saints.
Oh sure, we’re generally good people.
We don’t wake up and declare, “I refuse to be holy today. Sorry, God.”
We just don’t start each day with the conviction to practice virtue either.
Quick! Recall three of the most influential Catholics to have ever lived.
Mother Teresa? Thomas More? Francis of Assisi?
Whomever you chose, it’s a good bet they rank right up there with these Catholic Greats.
But have you ever asked yourself why they are so “great?” What is it about them that makes the Church sit up and say, “Hey everyone, look at her! Look at him!”…and we all do?
The reason is simple.
They were transformed.
