The Winning Strategy

"No, you can’t imagine it, any more than anyone could imagine how twelve nice Jewish boys could conquer the Roman Empire. You can’t imagine it, but you can do it. You can become a saint. Absolutely no one and nothing can stop you. It is your free choice. Here is one of the truest and most terrifying sentences I have ever read (from William Law’s Serious Call): “If you will look into your own heart in complete honesty, you must admit that there is one and only one reason why you are not a saint: you do not wholly want to be.

That insight is terrifying because it is an indictment. But it is also thrillingly hopeful because it is an offer, an open door. Each of us can become a saint. We really can."
~ Peter Kreeft, The Winning Strategy

  1. I found you through Kristen's blog. This is a convicting quote. Thank you for sharing. When making my book list for the year, I had meant to include Peter Kreeft and somehow omitted him. Thank you for the reminder. I enjoyed my visit here.

  2. You're welcome, Jeannine.

  3. I've read this article twice since I saw it posted on facebook a few weeks ago. I have been thinking of blogging about it. It has completely changed the way I live. I have decided that I, too, can become a Saint if I try a little harder! So now, with everything I do/think, I keep this in mind.


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I hope that you have a wonderful day! God bless you!
