The Conversation Went Like This...

Person A: You mean I can be a saint?

Me: Yep.

Person A: But I'm not Mother Teresa.

Me: You're right.

Person A: No, I can't be Mother Teresa.

Me: I know.

Person A: I don't have the time to start a religious order that now exceeds 600 communities in over 120 countries. That's what saints do. I got mouths to feed, a spouse to take care of, garage sales to shop, and a work project due Thursday. How can I be a saint?

Me: "Give God permission."
