"We need saints without cassocks, without veils - we need saints with jeans
and tennis shoes. We need saints that go to the movies that listen to music,
that hang out with their friends. We need saints that place God in first
place ahead of succeeding in any career. We need saints that look for time
to pray every day and who know how to be in love with purity, chastity
and all good things. We need saints - saints for the 21st century with a
spirituality appropriate to our new time. We need saints that have a
commitment to helping the poor and to make the needed social change.
"We need saints to live in the world, to sanctify the world and to not be
afraid of living in the world by their presence in it. We need saints that
drink Coca-Cola, that eat hot dogs, that surf the internet and that listen to
their iPods. We need saints that love the Eucharist, that are not afraid or
embarrassed to eat a pizza or drink a beer with their friends. We need
saints who love the movies, dance, sports, theater. We need saints that are
open sociable normal happy companions. we need saints who are in this
world and who know how to enjoy the best in this world without being
callous or mundane. We need saints."
- Pope Francis (World Youth Day 2013)
