Why You Should Want to Become a Saint
In yesterday’s editorial post, I mentioned the new happenings inside catholicwomendisciples.com. Truly a piece of great news for us here and our supporters. To have formed a research team, which will finally resolve the long lapses of posting in the site is a most welcome development. And we will be showcasing stories of the lives of the Saints as our team’s first project.
Isn’t that exciting?
Anyhow, while I was considering our Saint project I remember past conversations within our Church community where the idea of becoming a Saint is discussed.
I found the idea of becoming a Saint a far-reaching endeavor, however. I surely cannot become a saint. Doing the best that I can to become the best person that God created me to be and to try to be the best that I can be as a woman of God should be enough for me.
Then I learned that to be a saint means to be holy.
Wouldn’t you want to be holy?
I do want to be holy! And I will aspire to be holy because God commands us to be holy:
” . . . ‘You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy.'” – Leviticus 19:2
As we embark on holiness as the Father in Heaven commanded us to be holy like Him, we shall, therefore, aspire to become Saints and be in communion with God here on earth and eternally in Heaven.
