Saints and Revolutionaries

In the "new" Universal Catechism, when we look in the subject index under Saints, we are told to "see Holiness". That such a reference is profound should come as no real surprise, but that it should come as no real surprise is itself quite profound.

The simple fact the Church teaches us that we each have a personal call to live a life of holiness is no simple fact to many in the world - it is revolutionary. It is as strange as the lives of the saints they know so little about.
