God Will Make Saints of Us, If....

'Perseverance is what God wants. 
If we get up and start again after each fall, 
God will make saints of us in the end.'

Father William Doyle

Painting: William Bouguereau, 1873


  1. Those Fruits of the Holy Spirit...some are harder than others, but I thank God for each of them! I cannot imagine not having the Gifts and Fruits of the Holy Spirit. How much harder life would be!

  2. I guess I am the "old goat" of getting back up!! I've definitely have the falling thing down!! Love the complexion of the painting!! And that lamb...I want to hold it.... Your newer header is great!

    1. Thank you! The header is what I'd really had in mind all along, but it took time for me to find "fitting" paintings and sort them out. At first I was going to use just paintings of saints (since they are quoted here so often), but then I liked "illustrating" the idea that we are ALL called to be saints. And then I started considering colors and shapes and and who-was-doing-what and does this go with that and maybe that doesn't work so well with this and I like what this person is doing but she's the wrong size and this other one has a background that's too busy and that one has totally clashing colors and this IS how BLOGGERS' HEADS EXPLODE!!!!! ;)
