To be a saint is not really a privilege for the few, but a vocation for everyone.

Saints were not superhuman, they were people who loved God in their hearts, and who shared this joy with others.

saint is a person who is recognized as having an exceptional degree of holiness or likeness to God. They are also historically referred to as hallow.

While the English word saint originated in Christianity, historians of religion prefer to use the appellation in a more general way to refer to “the state of special holiness that many religions attribute to certain people”.

“When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! – John 19:26

Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy Mother! And from that hour the disciple took her unto her own” – John 19:27

Near the cross of Jesus stood his mother Mary, his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. When Jesus saw his mother there, and the disciple whom he loved standing nearby, he said to his mother, “Dear woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” From that time on, this disciple took her into her home.

Sounds odd, but when I say that we feel really proud of an accident which happened in our lives, it is perhaps as closest to the universal truth as it could be. We feel so proud that we become religiously wedded to it.

How religious do we become when it comes to adopting an accident. The accident of being born into a particular religion is what I mean.
