Even the Saints got Angry.
St. Thérèse of Lisieux is honest in her writings about the temptations against charity which she experienced at Carmel. In The Story of a Soul, she tells of the manifold irritations and contradictions she met in community life. She transformed them into steppingstones to holiness by viewing them as opportunities for grace.
Being a saint isn’t about being flawless. It’s about working on flaws—and using them as opportunities for perfection. If we are honest about our faults and take concrete steps to correct them, we have already taken a giant leap toward sanctity. Overcoming Sinful Anger is a great resource to help identify the root causes of anger, learn how to deal with them, and heal relationships affected by anger.
Today I will make look at my flaws and work hard at making better choices to correct them.
