Is there anyone who wakes up in the morning and says "It's time to be mediocre"? Or anyone who goes out to play on a sports team just to sit on the bench? How about is there any woman who looks in the mirror and says "I don't want to look too good looking, let me be average please."
I think it is pretty obvious that with the slight exception to a select few the answer will be "no one" to all of these questions. Why is that? Because something in our design and nature says that we were created for the best possible always.
This... Is Sainthood.
Many may know a part of my story where as a young boy,(similar to many of us growing up in the U.S.) when asked what I wanted to be when I grew up I responded "I want to be a Super Hero". To this day superheroes hold high relevance in my life.(In fact I just bought a USB flash drive that is made as a Batman character. Lol)
As I have progressed and gotten older, I have learned that to be a Superhero means to be a Saint. In fact my conversion story could be summarized in this way... Superheroes led me to Tupac; who led me to the Saints; who led me to connection to the church; who led me to the Idente Missionaries and Fernando Rielo's thought; who led me Christ; who led me to our Heavenly Father.... And the Holy Spirit has guided this the whole way through.
I speak about Sainthood a lot. It's what inspired most of my recent art in particular my last EP. I often refer to the Identes as the "X-Men" which would mean of course that Fernando was Professor X, and I am definitely Wolverine.
I write about this here today to ask one simple question - What do you value?
My summary of what a Saint is would be simply put like this - "The Saint is the one who learns the true value of things in the Father's eyes and then lives accordingly. He/She is one who worries about nothing else but the Kingdom of God."
Be a Saint! Store up your treasures in Heaven, and never stop living a life of love.
