Do you ever think about the saints and wonder how they could ascend to such spiritual heights? Consider this: You are a saint in the making. Our lives may not be perfect but our quest for holiness never stops. Do you believe it?
I often lose my way in life
but so did many of the saints—
your cherished sons and daughters who
used grace as their trusted compass.
They were imperfect,
yet they maintained a perfect faith in God.
I strive to uphold that kind of steadiness and love.
I offer this prayer to all the women and men
who came before me and cleared
a path to righteousness.
May the saints guide me to a clearing
where I can breathe in your mercy.
