"SAINTHOOD IS IN EVERYONE'S REACH"

JULY 18, 1981

“SAINTHOOD IS IN EVERYONE’S REACH”

“The special determination of an individual person to do the Will of God is not limited to any one or small group of people.  It is the privilege of all human beings.

The perseverance of doing God’s Will, for The Saints, was the key to their Sainthood.  Their various methods, means, intentions, motives, sacrifices, acts of charity, acceptance of responsibilities, strength in standing up for the truths they believed in and fought for, and through their dauntless efforts to achieve special goals to accomplish a status of leading others in piety and more love for God, made their lives outstanding example for everyone.

Firm beliefs in strict self-discipline for the benefit of one’s Soul are obviously necessary for a life of commitment and dedication to do God’s Will.  A watered down version, a halfhearted attempt or approach at devoting one’s life to God’s Will for the Soul is nothing more than an excuse for one’s lack of self-control, lack of self-discipline, ignoring the full understanding of the Meaning and Purpose for the physical life, and even though endowed with Spiritual Faith in God, ignoring the Gift of Faith from God.

The intellect of man tells him that his existence has a substantial Purpose and Meaning.  He was not born to decorate the world, he had Purpose.  The very environment of living has a valuable lesson in the Importance of man’s life.

The design of man and his sensitive nature to climate, to eating, to the desire and need for shelter, his initiative, his ability to reason, to make decisions, to accomplish so many things, his innate sense of right and wrong to rules and moral values and standards, sets man in a class of distinction different than all other living things.

Sainthood is not a competitive proposition among men.  It is a result of loving God more than one’s self.  It is a persevering force of human desires, needs, moral ethics, moral disciplines, along with a true sense of piety, whether it be silent or verbal.

God beckons, calls, summons all men to Sainthood.  Many ignore His Obvious Methods and choose to place more importance on immoral living, thinking they are acting as a free agent, facing each day with only a small glimmer of what life is all about.

A tangled web of detours on the way to Sainthood can be avoided, but if selfishness, self-love, self-acclaim, sinfulness, disobedience to God’s Commandments are practiced as a mode of life, then Sainthood is not inevitable.”

“THE POWER OF FAITH
IS BEYOND MAN’S COMPREHENSION.”
