Good quote for reflection

Good quote from the introduction to St. Charles of Sezze's "An Autobiography" - "there is quite common opinion among religious people, that saints are born saints, that they are privileged right from their first appearance on this earth. This is not so, and St Charles of Sezze, Franciscan Saint, stands as a strong refutation of this opinion. Saints become saints in the usual way, due to the generous fidelity of their correspondence to divine grace. They had to fight just as we do, and more so, against their passions, the world and the devil".
