“To tend toward Christian perfection is something that concerns and obliges everyone without exception by virtue of the first commandment: “You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.” Christian perfection consists precisely in this. But it is a fact, useless to deny, that even among believers and Christians, the immense majority of men and women have never even considered the problem of their own sanctification nor realize that it affects them too. Doubtless they aspire to save their souls; but nothing more. It has not occurred to them that they could and should become saints. The worst thing is that neither do they realize that by living such a neglected Christian life and having such mediocre ideals and aspirations, they run the risk of not even obtaining this minimum objective.” – Rev. Antonio Royo Marin, O.P.
