The Daily Grind and Sanctity

Spectacular heroism, even martyrdom, is easy; the daily grind is hard. Many can respond to emergencies heroically; few can keep up their charity day to day, especially when no one notices. That’s why picking up a scrap of paper for the love of God can be more of a proof of sanctity than martyrdom.
