I think about saints frequently. There are some saints I really like, Francis of Assisi, Catherine of Siena, Gianna Molla, Teresa of Avila, mostly because of what they accomplished during their lifetimes. I recently came across a definition of a saint, "one who wills the one thing." And, if I think and pray about this definition, anyone can be a saint. It just depends on what you "will' so to speak.
You can will goodness, kindness, love and joy or not. I often joke that I will become a saint, but really, I do want to strive to become a saint. It does come down to "willing" the one thing, unceasingly with love. What is your one thing?
