I think the world needs more saints. I think the world needs more people who are willing to stand up and say that they desire sainthood in today's world. That means that they are going to choose sainthood in everything that they do.
They can be Catholic, but they don't have to be. The only requirement is that they desire sainthood. Everything else is secondary. When that first thing is introduced in your life, then everything will fall into place. Everything will make sense. What is a priority when it comes to this decision or that decision? Choose sainthood and the way becomes clear.
The Sainthood Project is simple. Gather 1000 people who want to be saints. Period.
1000 people who desire to give their lives completely to God so that God can do what He will.
1000 people that will be open to vocations if God asks.
1000 people that will be open to doing mission work if God asks.
1000 people that are going to care more about others than themselves.
1000 people that are going to pray at every moment as if their lives depended on it... because they do.
1000 people that are going to give a witness to the joy that is in them.
1000 people that are going to allow the Grace of God to completely disrupt their lives, make them dangerous to the world, open them to persecution, but be willing to stand up for the truth in complete love no matter the cost.
1000 people that are going to change the culture by living counter-culturally, not through anger, argument, violence, and condemnation. They are going to change the culture through love, hope, faith, courage, wisdom, justice, and self-control and applying these virtues to their own lives every single moment of every single day.
1000 people that are going to reflect each and every day on how God is working in their lives. On how God is calling them deeper into a relationship of love. Simple, pure, beautiful, good, true love.
This is not a self-help program. You cannot make yourself a saint. Only the Sanctifying Grace of God can. This is merely a way for you to open yourself up to God's grace in your life so that you can become what you were created to be.
This is not a political party. God is bigger than that.
This is not some marketing scheme. You don't have to pay a thing.
This is not a new church. Jesus already gave us one.
This is not a T-shirt, a bumper sticker, a slogan, or a television show. You can't market the human heart.
This is not easy. Look at a crucifix or look at the lives of the saints to see our model.
Pray. What is God calling you to? Is God calling you to be a saint? If not, what in hell are you going to do with eternal life?
