You can imagine what the crippled man thought when Jesus asked the question: “Do you want to be well?” Of course, I want to be well. He proceeded to give all the excuses on why he wasn’t well. Jesus does not accept any excuses but with a word produced a cure. What do we think when Jesus asks us the question: “Do you want to be a saint?” Of course, I want to be a saint. Then come the excuses: poor upbringing, wounded soul, untamed desires. Jesus does not accept any excuses from us. If we want to be saints all we need do is shift the focus off of ourselves and what we are going through and notice God in us and our neighbors.
