WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BECOME A SAINT?
Let’s start with what it does not mean… Being a saint does not just mean to be a good person. A saint is someone who vehemently struggles, strives and wrestles with their age.
Catherine of Siena grapples with the greatest tragedies of her time namely the Black Plague and the Avignon Papacy. This great saint allowed her encounter with Christ to be formed by a deep mystical piety. From that piety came an evangelical zeal that literally change the course of history.
We are born to wrestle with the age, our own personal sin, and the sin of others, and from that struggle to grow in virtue and holiness. We bring all of these difficulties to Christ to help sanctify the culture. The vocation of Christians is to sanctify the age in which we find ourselves.
