You can be a Saint

Every follower of Christ has a goal, a longing in their heart, a yearning to become a saint.

It’s not about holding an important office in the ecclesiastical hierarchy or having supernatural gifts. Rather, it’s about allowing God to lead you down a certain path that, if pursued, will bring out the best out in you as a person. While few saints are actually canonised, the vast majority are, as Pope Francis calls them, “the saints ‘next door,’” those who form part of “the middle class of holiness.” Most are anonymous saints, but with their good works they transform their surroundings, making them more Christian and more human.

This is the main message of Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation Gaudete et Exsultate (Rejoice and be Glad), published April 9, 2018.
