Saints are ordinary people who love Jesus, try to be like him, are faithful to the duties of their state in life, sacrifice themselves for their neighbor, and keep their hearts and minds free of this world.
One cannot possibly understand the teaching of the saints unless one has a pure mind and is trying to imitate their life.

Love rules the court, the camp, the grove, And men below, and saints above: For love is heaven, and heaven is love.
To me, there are saints every day. They stand up and help others and live for others and do things for others.
Like Andy Warhol and unlike God Almighty, Larry King does not presume to judge; all celebrities are equal in his eyes, saints and sinners alike sharing the same 'Love Boat' voyage into the dark beyond, a former sitcom star as deserving of pious send-off as Princess Diana.

Henry B. Eyring
