This is the quotation Husband and I discovered when we did the acrostic in the New York Times Magazine this Sunday:
"The wonderful thing about saints is that they were human. They lost their tempers, got hungry, scolded God, were egotistical or testy, made mistakes and regretted them. Still they went on doggedly blundering toward heaven."
P. McGinley, "Saint Watching"
How timely! I had never heard of this book.
But I learned all about it on another blog, which coincidentally turns out to be from Minnesota. For a few minutes, I entered another whole realm of the blogosphere (instead of going to bed).
Funny what you will learn doing puzzles in the Sunday New York Times.
Happy All Saints Day.
