The true saint is not one who has become convinced that he himself is holy, but one who is overwhelmed by the realization that God, and God alone is holy. He is so awestruck with the reality of the divine holiness that he begins to see it everywhere. Eventually, he may be able to see it in himself too: but surely he will see it there last of all…

The saint, then, seeks not his own glory but the glory of God.

Thomas Merton, Life and Holiness (New York: Image, 1963). p. 26.
