Sanctity Needs Great Desire

Sermon From The
Feast Of All Saints 2013
Our Lord in the Gospel teaches the Beatitudes which show the blessedness of the saints.  We must have great desire to be holy and we can achieve this with prayer and effort.  Although non-Catholics criticize devotion to the saints they are not following Christian practice which dates back to the second century when several Apostolic Fathers recorded how relics, feastdays and prayers in honor of the Blessed Mother and the martyrs were already well-established.  We must go to the saints who are more powerful now in heaven than they ever were on earth.  We should take the words of St. Augustine to heart: “If they can become saints why can’t I?”  Prayer to the saints will be rewarded.  Heaven is our home and for that we have been created.
