“You have heard that it was said, * ‘You shall not commit adultery;’* but I tell you that everyone who gazes at a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart. If your right eye causes you to stumble, pluck it out and throw it away from you. For it is more profitable for you that one of your members should perish, than for your whole body to be cast into Gehenna. If your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off, and throw it away from you. For it is more profitable for you that one of your members should perish, than for your whole body to be cast into Gehenna.                “It was also said, ‘Whoever shall put away his wife, let him give her a writing of divorce,’* but I tell you that whoever puts away his wife, except for the cause of sexual immorality, makes her an adulteress; and whoever marries her when she is put away commits adultery.                “Again you have heard that it was said to them of old time, ‘You shall not make false vows, but shall perform to the Lord your vows,’ but I tell you, don’t swear at all: neither by heaven, for it is the throne of God; nor by the earth, for it is the footstool of his feet; nor by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King. Neither shall you swear by your head, for you can’t make one hair white or black. But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes’ and your ‘No’ be ‘No.’ Whatever is more than these is of the evil one.                “You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.’* But I tell you, don’t resist him who is evil; but whoever strikes you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also. If anyone sues you to take away your coat, let him have your cloak also. Whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks you, and don’t turn away him who desires to borrow from you.                “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor,* and hate your enemy.*’ But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who mistreat you and persecute you, that you may be children of your Father who is in heaven.

Quotations about sainthood
   

His (the pope's) dialogue with God lasted constantly, he needed to pray unceasingly, also in public places, in the presence of crowds. Action and contemplation in him seemed to be one and the same.

Joaquín Navarro-Valls about John Paul II


The more one does what is good, the freer one becomes.

Catechism of the Catholic Church (1733)


Pier Giorgio did not think for a moment what people would say about him: his entire life he had always followed only one rule: what would God think of me?

Father Pietro Righini


Whoever, therefore, shall break one of these least commandments, and teach others to do so, shall be called least in the Kingdom of Heaven; but whoever shall do and teach them shall be called great in the Kingdom of Heaven.

Matthew 5:19


Even so, let your light shine before men; that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

Matthew 5:16


For a man's merits are not measured by many visions or consolations, or by knowledge of the Scriptures, or by his being in a higher position than others, but by the truth of his humility, by his capacity for divine charity, by his constancy in seeking purely and entirely the honor of God, by his disregard and positive contempt of self, and more, by preferring to be despised and humiliated rather than honored by others.

Thomas à Kempis "The Imitation Of Christ"


There is only one tragedy in the end, not to have been a saint.

Léon Bloy


O happy solitude, o sole happiness! (O, beata solitudo, o sola beatitudo!)


We are as happy as we are united with God. So the most important thing you can do in life is to seek saintliness (saintliness is unity with God)...

Father Alexander - a Catholic Priest


The norm for a man is saintliness (oneness with God).

Father Alexander - a Catholic Priest


You shall be holy to me: for I, Yahweh, am holy...

Leviticus 20:26


Speak to all the congregation of the children of Israel, and tell them, 'You shall be holy; for I Yahweh your God am holy.

Leviticus 19:2


...but just as he who called you is holy, you yourselves also be holy in all of your behavior; because it is written, "You shall be holy; for I am holy".

Peter's First Letter 1:15-16


Others were tortured, not accepting their deliverance, that they might obtain a better resurrection.
Others were tried by mocking and scourging, yes, moreover by bonds and imprisonment.
They were stoned. They were sawn apart. They were tempted. They were slain with the sword. They went around in sheep skins and in goat skins; being destitute, afflicted, ill-treated
(of whom the world was not worthy), wandering in deserts, mountains, caves, and the holes of the earth.

The Letter to the Hebrews 11:35-38


But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who mistreat you and persecute you,
that you may be children of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust.
For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Don't even the tax collectors do the same?
If you only greet your friends, what more do you do than others? Don't even the tax collectors do the same?
Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.
