Being a saint also means that we live only for God. Florence Nightingale, one of the great British women, only began her training as a nurse when she was thirty years old. She wrote this in her diary: “I am thirty years of age, the age when Christ began his mission. Now no more childish things. No more vain things. Now, Lord, let me think only of Thy will.” A holy person lives for God only. When she was near the end of her career, someone asked her what her life’s secret was, and this is what she said: “I can give only one explanation … I have kept nothing back from God.” She was totally devoted to Christ.
