"I am the way and the truth and the life"
I wish I could lie and say that I wasn't playing Pokemon Go like everyone else... Frankly, the game has lots of problems, so I probably won't be playing for much longer (I mean seriously... all I'm catching are Rattatas and Pidgies); but since I'm a youth minister and tend to relate everything I experience to my faith, I thought I would take advantage of this current trend for a moment.
Saints are like Pokemon. Yes, this is a crazy analogy, but hold on. God "catches" certain individuals as weak sinners and they "evolve" into strong Saints. He did it in both the Old and New Testament. Just look at the guy from the Old Testament, Abram. Talk about a sorry excuse for a husband! The guy wouldn't even let people know Sarah was his wife since he was afraid of what the Egyptians might do to him. God took this knucklehead, changed his name to Abraham, and made him the direct ancestor of Jesus himself!
Now look at Saul from the New Testament. This jerk was arresting Christians for... being Christians... and even had some executed! Thankfully Jesus got a little vengeance by knocking him off his horse, inducing him with temporary blindness, and overall making him look silly (thank you!). But after a name change, a hasty catechetical formation, and restored vision, Paul went out and became one of the greatest Saints the Church has ever known!
All this goes to show that we sinners have it in us to "evolve" into great Saints if we are even a little open to being "caught" by God.
