Suburban Sainthood is all about setting our sights on heaven. It’s not about perfection. It’s not about miracles. It’s not about guilt or shame because we’re not as holy as we should be.
The point of Suburban Sainthood is that you don’t have to conquer the world or start a religious order to become a saint. In the spirit of Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta, Suburban Sainthood is about doing small things with great love. It’s about doing our best to live our beliefs everyday and not just on Sunday. It’s about loving God and our neighbor with our WHOLE self. It’s about doing our best and, when we’re able, doing a little bit better. In the spirit of St. Josemaria Escriva, it’s about the fact that we’re ALL called to sainthood, not just a select few.
But, most of all, Suburban Sainthood is about encouraging each other in our spiritual journeys and helping each other become closer to God.
“Holiness consists simply in doing God’s will, and being just what God wants us to be.”
― Thérèse de Lisieux
