In the memory of the saints



God not only saves, He also makes holy those souls that receive His word, His entire work. All the saints have the same Holy Spirit. Therefore, in terms of quality, one does not differ from the other. It is the same grace that they receive from God.

Each one of us is able to become a saint if he makes the brave decision to respond to the word of God and to put it into practice. Then, it is as if God says to him: “You will obey, will bow down, and will follow; My Spirit will take care of the rest.” We ought only to surrender to His grace, so that He can make us the way that He wants, i.e., make us saints. And in this struggle to submit ourselves to the Lord, we have the saints to encourage us with their lives and their own struggling.

When celebrating the memory of the

saints, it is not enough just to remember them or to pray: we must imitate their lives.
