Some saints are renowned for their eloquence of speech; others, for their extraordinary deeds. All are remarkable for their piety, for their intense devotion to God, loving Him above all else, and loving whomever God loves for His sake. These are true friends of God, dear to Him and precious in His sight.
Although few of us are gifted with the remarkable words and deeds of the saints, each of us can cultivate within our heart a sincere and pious devotion to God, which will, with the help of God’s grace, manifest itself in a holy lifestyle suitable to our present station in life. Therein lies the key to sanctity and to our ultimate fulfillment.
