Here is the question that is gnawing on me.  How on earth do I become a saint?  I mean, it's so easy to go online and find a 10 step program to accomplish just about everything.  10 Steps to Financial Freedom, 10 Steps to a Bikini Body, 5 Ways to Negotiate Your Way to a Better SalaryFour Ways to Find the Man of Your Dreams, then, of course, you've got to work to keep him from cheating, and on and on and on.

The accomplishment of every worldy ambition has been analyzed and studied and broken down into small, achievable steps that guarantee results if you have the willpower to implement them.

But MrsDiligent needs a self-help book for the otherworldly.  I need someone to break down for me into small, manageable chunks the steps I must follow to love God with all my heart, all my soul and all my mind.   And I do mean small and manageable.  The soul that is starting this project is in pretty bad shape, crusted over with years of selfish and prideful choices.  When even "The Little Way" of St. Therese seems too complicated and transcendental, you know you need something along the lines of "Sainthood for Dummies."

So, I did what anyone would do.  I went to Amazon and asked.  I searched, "how to become a saint?" and this is what I got: An Easy Way to Become a Saint by Father Paul O'Sullivan O.P.  That sounds like exactly what I need!

So, beginning to tomorrow, we will explore what Father O'Sullivan has to say about becoming a saint, easily.
