My struggle with Numerical Methods project would have failed very quickly If I hadn't recovered my spiritual and physical strength with the incredibly amazing and amazingly incredible May's Post of the Month.
The author in a laconic but imbued with wisdom message managed to explain us the Divine truth without unnecessary embellishments and complicated language.
I think everyone can benefit from such a great post.
Brothers and Sisters, give a big round of applause to genesisone
WORTHY! WORTHY! WORTHY!
I said saints were celibate before becoming saints, which could mean three weeks, such as in the case of martyrs, three years or from the time of birth. I never said: Saints never had a part of their lives when they were not Saintly.
Might I suggest something else could be at work: it was not their celibacy that made them saints, but that their saintliness led them to choose celibacy. The aforementioned St Mary of Egypt would be an example of that.
