May they be Imitated

Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. Luke 12:33-34

Undertaking lives of charity, the saints lived out the Lord's call to serve the poor - as a result they are not to be adored, for that is for God alone - they are to be imitated. The saints consecrated themselves to the care of the sick, the homeless, the outcast and dying. In their mercy, they were shown mercy. In return for their heroic ability to follow Christ in His poverty - the saints were blessed with many gifts and favors from the Lord. May they never be adored - but may they be imitated in all of our lives, hearts, minds and souls.
