If you are a regular reader, you'll know that the saints are very close to my heart and a frequent topic on this blog. Today, I'd just like to share the above painting with you (the cover of an book on saints for children, in preparation by my besties PM and JM) and the following quote:
“[O]nce you enter into friendship with God, everything in your life begins to change. ... You are attracted to the practice of virtue. You begin to see greed and selfishness and all the other sins for what they really are, destructive and dangerous tendencies that cause deep suffering and do great damage. ... You begin to feel compassion for people in difficulties and you are eager to do something to help them. ... And once these things begin to matter to you, you are well on the way to becoming saints” (Benedict XVI, addressing Catholic pupils on 17 September 2010, during his visit to the UK)Happy All Saints day!
