no one ever wins the crown.”

In the same way, the lives of the Saints show up our defects.
If we fail to see our faults,
it is because we have not looked at the lives of
holy men and women.”
St Anthony of Padua (1195-1231) Doctor of the Church

Wonderful you say.
Yes, to be sure but He does.
what is still more wonderful,
He makes saints out of sinners.”
Soren Kierkegaard (1813-1855)
“In heaven, we shall not meet with indifferent glances,
because all the elect will discover
that they owe to each other,
the graces that merited the crown for them.”

“Life holds only one tragedy, ultimately,
not to have been a saint.”

the steering wheel of his life
and lets God steer.”
