Do you ever feel like there’s some big secret to becoming a saint and you can’t figure out what it is? What did they do to become so awesome? Was there a book they read? A certain prayer they prayed? Does a diet of bread and fish help?
That’s what I was wondering. (Not so much the bread and fish part.) God has been teaching me that you become a saint by . . .
Breathing doesn’t become less important as our physical tasks get more difficult; it becomes more important. It’s the same with prayer. It will most likely seem impossible to find time for a lot of prayer during finals week. I urge you to make it work . . .
Like most girls, I love watching chick flicks. It is romantic and exciting to watch a love story unfold and end happily ever after. However, at the end of the movie, I feel incomplete as a single woman and immediately start daydreaming about my future spouse. St. Paul says, “The woman who is unmarried, and the virgin, is concerned about the things of the Lord, that she may be holy both in body and spirit,” 1 Corinthians 7:34. Am I acting as though I am unmarried or married when I am focusing on my future spouse? Sometimes when we think our vocation is marriage, we tend to focus on catching a guy with our beauty. The more we flirt, the quicker we fall in love and live happily ever after… or so we think.
