Welcome to Seeking Suburban Sainthood! S.S.S. is where I’ll be sharing my own struggles to attain holiness in my ordinary, suburban, mini-van-owning, carpool-driving, soccer mom life. Given the fact that I struggle ALOT in my spiritual life, I have a feeling that there will be plenty to share with you.
But it’s not just about me. It’s about all of us and the spiritual challenges that come with a suburban lifestyle. It’s also about a new attitude toward sainthood. After all, sainthood isn’t just for the dead. St. Paul called the early Christians “saints” when he addressed them in his epistles. In his eyes, a saint was merely a follower of Christ. So if that’s the case, all Christians should consider themselves saints, albeit imperfect ones.
The goal here is to help each other become better saints so that, when the time comes, we’ll be ready to enter the Kingdom of Heaven together. So, here’s the deal-I’ll help you with your sainthood if you help me with mine. Who’s with me?
May your journey be blessed!
The Suburban Saint (S.S.)
