Good to Better

“There are more people converted from mortal sin to grace, then there are religious converted from good to better.”
~St. Bernard of Clairvaux

“Bernard was saying that there are more men who give up serious alienation from God, mortal sin, than there are people who give up small wrongs, willed venial sins. And there are even fewer who grow into heroic virtue and live as saints live. If we are saddened by this realization, we ought to be.”
~Thomas Dubay
