The Catholic Church has two new saints

The Catholic Church has two new saints!  No other time in the Catholic Church’s history have two Popes been canonized.  Not only that, but the canonization was witnessed by the retired Pope Benedict XVI.Pope Benedict XVI

Sainthood is one of those things that I’ve always felt happened to other people.  In reality sainthood is for everyone.  We should all be striving to become saints within our own lives.

An unattainable goal?  Not really.  Most saints were ordinary people who tried to overcome the obstacles put before them and get done what they thought God was calling them to do.  Sometimes they waited years to fulfill that calling and other times God’s plan changed their own plan.

Today is also the eighth day of the Chaplet of Divine Mercy.

Today let’s rejoice that the Catholic Church has two new saints and for all of us who will be saints one day!
