We can all be saints

The Words from 33 Days to Merciful Love that inspired this homily.

For Therese saints like the Great Teresa of Avila were like eagles, soaring on the heights of holiness; whereas, she simply saw herself as a weak little bird without strength and unable to fly. In fact, she readily admitted “I am not an eagle.” Nevertheless, she went on to explain “but I have . . . an eagle’s Eyes and heart.” Then, she continued “[So] in spite of my extreme littleness I still dare to gaze upon [the Lord] and my heart feels within it all the aspirations of an Eagle.”
