“Blessed are the clean of heart, for they will see God.” (Matthew 5: 8)

Reading numerous accounts of our contemporary canonized or beatified teenage brothers and sisters I get the impression that  some writers trying to make them more accessible to the readership  intentionally underline human qualities, as though “loving to make videos of his dogs” or “listening to pop music” might bring anyone closer to God. On the contrary it  stands in stark contrast to the teaching of Jesus ”I tell you, unless your righteousness surpasses that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5:20)

Praise the Lord
