Have you ever felt like it's impossible to reach Sainthood? Do you think of Sainthood as something difficult, unattainable, pius, strict or boring? Perhaps you even think of it as something exclusively for the perfect, holy, sinless, brave or religious. Sainthood is not so... Sainthood is for everyone, no matter where you have been and what you've done. There is no sin which is unforgivable, except that of the sin you withhold from God's mercy. With His mercy and grace, YOU CAN BE A SAINT! Alas, I can almost hear you saying, "oh, really Rachel...? But can I do it as a 21st Century millennial/Gen Z vibin' my best life?"
I'm glad you asked... *enter soon-to-be Blessed Carlo Acutis* You, my friends in the front row, have almost received a saint of your own times. The first Millennial to be beatified! Carlo was a fun, smart, sporty, computer nerdy kid who was only born in the 90's. He's actually well-known for creating a website which documented all the Eucharistic Miracles from around the world!
Be joyful that you have a saint in Heaven praying specifically for people like yourself! Do not be afraid to ask him to pray for you too. And as for that saintly business and being holy - I mean, well, if you don't feel all that holy don't be afraid of humility either (because God loves the little ones), and excepting that you need God's help.
You can find out for about Venerable Carlo Acutis below, and make note! His beatification date is today, the 10th October, 2020. A great month for Heaven and the saints, and a great month for us too.
