We should all have a “Becket List” where the only thing to do before you die is to become a saint.

St. Thomas Becket himself was voted “Least likely to become a saint” in his High School yearbook. Well not really, but this would have certainly been the attitude of those who had known him prior to his conversion. He is a great example of wherever you are right now on your own path of conversion that sanctity is always within reach while we still draw a breath. Especially considering the connection of the Holy Spirit and breath.


Breathe in me O Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy; Act in me O Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy; Draw my heart O Holy Spirit, that I love but what is holy; Strengthen me O Holy Spirit, to defend all that is holy; Guard me, then, O Holy Spirit, that I always may be holy. Amen. – St. Augustine

  1. Good idea. Although not a big Saint Augustine fan I do appreciate this prayer quote. A good place to start the “Becket List”.

    Thank you for this idea.
