CAN WE BE SAINTS

 

POPE:  SAINTS ARE NOT SUPERHEROES

 

SAINTS are not superheroes, but ordinary people who never left God’s side after encountering him and hia love. Pope Francis said on the feast of All Saints.

“Being a saint is not a privilege of the few, like some-one getting a large inheritance. All of us have inherted through baptism the ability to become saints”, he said. Before reciting the Angelus with people gathered in St Peter’s Square, the Pope talked about God’s call to holiness.

“The saints are friends of God,” he said. But they “are not superheroes, nor were they born perfect. They are like us, each one of us.” What makes them stand out, he said, is once they encountered Jesus, they always followed him. “The path that leads to holiness has a face, it’s the face of Jesus Christ; he teaches us to become saints.”
