I have read and enjoyed “My Life with the Saints,” by Fr. James Martin, SJ. The suffering, sinning and coming to Grace with God that they went through humbled me. How could I even come close to this. But as I thought about it more, I realized that they were just ordinary people like me. Still, I can’t imagine myself as a Saint, but maybe I shouldn’t. If I just love and care for others, pray and study scripture, then I can be an earthly saint. One that will not be canonized, but one who follows what Jesus teaches.
