By almost any standard, most of Us are unrepentant, profligate sinners and yet we all know that it would be best to repent of our sire and find refuge in God. Almost Invariably, we know what is the right thing to do, and yet we often refuse to do it. And even those of us who have learned howto control our sinful nature know that this is mostly just for show. We may be kind and mer~ on Lhe outside, but inside, we are often a seeLhtng cauldron of envy, jealousy, lust and hateful impulses and working hard to refrain from sin, but it Js possible for us to tame the inner beast. When we find ourselves thinking bad thoughts and inclined to sin internally, we must immediately ask for G0d's help and soon we may find Lhat'our inner life will be closer to the truly saintly lif~ And we should take encouragement from the fact that even genuine saints struggle with this. Think of Saint Paul's struggle with the flesh, which he mentions over and over again, or Saint Augustine's wayward youth. And more recently, we have heard about Mother Teresa and her inner struggiewlth her faith. Forttma~_ly, God's mercy is greater than our sins, and God never gives up on us. So, we should not give up on ourselves, and know that we are all called to be saints. To all God's beloved in Rome, who are c~lled to be saints: Grace to you and peace from God our FadJer and the ord Jesus Cbr~t.
