What Is the Reward?

A number of the news stories about the canonizations in Rome today make reference to sainthood — the naming of — as a “reward.” It is, of course, a tremendous thing. But it’s more for us — those of us still living on earth, struggling, trying to be holy — isn’t it? The real reward is eternal life. Accolades — even at Mass in Rome — pale in comparison.
We are reminded of this call, understanding our lives as an enrollment in a school of holiness. And what great teachers we have — these men and women who accomplished it by loving, trusting surrender.
