July 22 – St Maximilian Daily – The Saints Were Like Us

Ave Maria!July’s Theme: Holiness

“The idea that the Saints were not like us is false. They too were subject to temptations, they too fell and arose again, they too felt oppressed by sadness, weakened and paralyzed by discouragement. Nevertheless,?, they did not trust in themselves, but, placing all of their trust in God, after every fall they humbled themselves and sincerely repented. In this way the falls became like little stairs that they climbed towards ever greater perfection.” (cf. SK #1001)
