For where two or three are gathered together in My name, there am I in the midst of them. ~Matt. 18:20
Our focus should be on God first and foremost.May He bless you always, Michael.
If only all Christians really desired to become a saint. And understood what that entailed!
Thank you Victor and Noreen. It hit me pretty hard when I learned this. I dont think I ever aspired to be a Saint. Not because I didnt want to - but because I just didnt even think it applied to someone like me. So I aim for little things. Therese aimed for the top - and she hit it. There is a sports saying about you can only achieve the goals you set, and you should make your ceiling high, etc etc.I'm thinking I need to raise my ceiling!God Bless.
I had never even heard that we should aspire to be a saint until well into my adulthood. I should raise the bar higher for me too!
I remember when I first read Story of a Soul. And I read what St Therese wrote - that she realized that God gives us the desires that he wants to fulfill in us. That she had a strong desire to be a saint because He wanted her to be a saint. Doesn't he want all of us to be saints? After all, He wants us all to be with Him for all eternity.It changed my thinking, that is for sure. And so I too desire to be a saint.Thanks for reminding me of this, Michael!
