How to become a saint

There is a church called St. Gregory's of Nyssa in which they have a huge mural called "Dancing Saints". A selection of saints are along the upper boarder of the entry space of their sanctuary are depicted in a dance around the sanctuary. I have never been there but according to the website, the Jesus is 12 feet tall.

I am sure the size of Jesus and the other saints is in part because because of their location in the sanctuary - they need to be large in order to be seen.

However, it could also be that we view saints as larger than life.

Saints are not larger than life. Saints are normal people (like you and me) who have come to embrace their light and shadow sides.

When we come to embrace the reality that humans are a combination of sinner and saint we are take the first step toward sainthood.
