God wants you to be saint
- That doesn't mean someone who floats around on clouds playing harp.
- But someone who has chosen God and His will above all else.
- God is to give you all the grace you need to reach that destiny.
- There's only one catch.
- Receiving that grace isn't as easy as you might think.
- Bad choices make it harder for us to see and choose what is right.
- And we can fall into a vicious circle of bad choices.
- Leading to more bad choices.
- But there is a way out of that circle: the virtues!
- They reverse the circle of sin.
- The more the virtues become a part of our lives, the more easily we choose what is right, the more readily we accept the grace God wants to give us and the more likely it becomes that one day we can indeed become saints... with or without the harps.
