Are You Striving for Sainthood?

This examination is adapted from the official questionnaire that is used when the Church is investigating the worthiness for beatification and canonization of Catholics. They are the questions that are asked of the witnesses who knew the person in question when they were alive. It is a truly great examination of how we are doing, and what type of goals we can set in order to truly live our Catholic faith.  Are we striving to be saints?  There are only saints in Heaven.
