Personal Quote:

Heroic virtue does not mean that the saint performs a type of "gymnastics" of holiness, something that normal people do not dare to do. It means rather that in the life of a person God's presence is revealed-something man could not do by himself and through himself... Or, in other words, to be a saint is nothing other than to speak with God as a friend speaks with a friend. This is holiness. See more »
