Seven Common Characteristics of the Saints

(Saint Martin de Porres)

There are many characteristics that the saints have in common, and here are seven that I have noticed, relying particularly on the great Father Faber:

1. THEY LIVED FOR THE GLORY OF GODComment: The saints understood in an intense and radical manner that God is the Supreme Good of our lives, and so they patterned their lives to do all that they could for the Glory of God. In short, the saints realized that God is our true end and that nothing compares to the inestimable treasure we have in God.

    1. You are right!,but God’s grace works through his Saints. Listen to the question asked by Scripture:
      “do you not know that the saints will judge the world?” (1 Cor. 6:2). The Saints play their mighty role.
      Glory be to God.
