Saint Charles

I have absolutely no quibble with this saint, only with the headlineCharles de Foucauld to become a saint on 15 May

To be accurate, the man has already been a saint. Only now have we come to recognize it.

He was an example of a Matthew 21:29 Christian, growing up in a religious family, drifting away from the faith as a teen, then returning with fervor in his late twenties.

As soon as I believed in God, I understood that I could not do otherwise than to live for him alone.
