FOCUS ON BECOMING A SAINT
Our world seems upside down. There is confusion everywhere. What was clearly sinful a decade ago, is often considered perfectly acceptable today.
An example can be seen in what is termed gender dysphoria. There are men who think they are women and women who think they are men. Gender-confused people can often select the bathroom or dressing room of their choice. The gender lines in secular society are blurred. Dare to defend the teachings of the Church and you may be labeled intolerant and bigoted. What is a Catholic Christian to do?
The answer to this question is quite simple. We are to focus on becoming saints. Sound impossible? Remember the Lord said that nothing is impossible with Him. God can make saints out of the worst sinners. Just ask St. Augustine or even St. Paul. Both were terrible sinners who changed their ways to become great saints.
We are Catholic. We are all called to be saints. Although it may seem like an impossible feat, if we set our hearts to this goal and pray for the grace of God to be upon us, sainthood is attainable! Always pray and ask for the intercession of great saints to help you become one like them. In times of worldly confusion, focus on becoming the saint that God desires you to become.
Ponder: What changes in your daily life will you make in order to become a great saint?
Reflect: Luke 1:37
Pray: St. Augustine, please guide me on my path to sainthood.
