You Can Be a Saint. Here’s How.

If you want to meditate on one of the best examples of sainthood, check out Fr. Mark Toups’ newest book, In St. Joseph’s Footsteps: 30 Days of Meditations.

The Church is filled with wonderful examples of holiness and sainthood, and they can act as guides for us on our way to Heaven. But a lot of the time, we look at these great saints and think, “I could never be like them,” when in fact, sanctity is more accessible to us right now than we could ever even imagine. We know we should be striving to be saints, but what does that look like for people like you and me?

Today, Fr. Mike shares how we can work towards sainthood every day, without feeling like we’re chasing an impossible dream.
