Lord of Miracles invites us to be saints, says Peruvian archbishop

.- Archbishop Jose Antonio Eguren Anselmi of Piura, Peru noted in a homily on Oct. 28 that the Lord of the Miracles calls all who are baptized to become saints.

During a Mass and procession honoring the Lord of the Miracles – a feast that takes place each October in Peru – the archbishop recalled that Catholics need to “be saints in order to change the world, as there is no message more important for society than holiness. 

“The transformation this world needs is the transformation of our hearts.  Let us commit ourselves to working to be saints, to be disciples of Christ, to follow him and be like him, and thus build a society based on truth and love.”

“We are called on this day to look upon the cross with faith and love in order to embrace the mystery of the it, which is the cure for the illness of sin,” the archbishop said.  “It is on the cross that Jesus reconciles us with his Father and makes reconciliation between each other possible as well.  It is there that we find the strength and love to live as brothers and sisters, the strength to overcome hatred, quarreling and distrust, the strength to love each other as true brothers and sisters,” he continued.

“Christ’s mercy is so great that he comes out to meet us,” Archbishop Eguren stated.  “What tenderness the Lord of the Miracles has for us!  For this reason the month of October  ... should be filled with days we take advantage of to respond with faith and enthusiasm,” he said.
