Fr. Peter John Cameron, OP - published on 10/15/22

Sanctity is an adventure, we might even say the only adventure.

George Bernanos (+1948):

The hour of the saints is always coming. If someone approaches here with distrust, he will think he is seeing only closed doors—a sort of spiritual police station. But our Church is the Church of the saints. Who would not desire to have the strength to dare this admirable adventure? For sanctity is an adventure, we might even say the only adventure. Once you have understood this, you have reached the very heart of Catholic faith, you have felt the thrill in your mortal flesh of a terror different from that of death—the terror of a superhuman hope.
