Be a Saint

SaintAll are called by God to be a saint.  The Holy Sprint instills in each the gifts and talents necessary for their saintly calling. The saintliness God desires is to humbly walk with Him, as His son walked with Him, in mercy and justice with kindness and love.

Each is called to do the work of Lord by extending love, mercy and kindness to others in the name of the Lord and His beloved son, Jesus Christ.  All are not called be a Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta, or Saint Francis of Assisi, or a Saint Augustine of Hippo.   Many are called to serve the Lord as saints within their family, at their place of employment, or within their parish.  Some may be called to find one lost sheep for the Lord, for when the sheep that was lost is found there will be great rejoicing throughout the Kingdom of Heaven.

    Yes, God does not ask every person to do extraordinary things, but to do ordinary things well. St Francis de Sales understood this well, and he assured others that they can effectively serve God in whatever vocation or state of life to which God had originally called them, be it humble or great. God bless!

    One of my favorite quotes from Mother Teresa was that we each have our own Calcutta. Amen!

    We sanctify our simple daily activities by our Morning Offering of all that we do to God. It is a great blessing to remember throughout the day that sweeping the floor, chopping vegetables, mowing the lawn, completing a work assignment are all holy actions done out of love. From the outside they seem routine, but God knows our hearts. The only clue for an outsider to know is if these works are all done with joy.

    I think this is imortant for all of us. We can be ambitius to be saints, not in the sense of being canonised, but be fervently desiring to live as God wants us to live and to allow him to do the sanctifying. Thanks, Michael.
