Thick?

You don’t have to be a genius to be a Saint, that’s the beauty of religion (or a religious ism) such as Catholicism, because religion is thick. Religion can be understood by all age levels, for example, it is really good to pray the Rosary together as a family around newborns, infants and children as even children can understand the story of Jesus Christ and the gospel etc. For example, St. André Bessette (9 August 1845 – 6 January 1937), the first Canadian living after Confederation to be canonized, was illiterate. Some Saints were even “losers”! That’s the beauty of religion, especially Catholicism because you don’t need to be a genius, special or physically well endowed to be a good person. This determines that you can be an advanced genius yet be evil. That’s the difference between religion and philosophy, religion is an unbelievably simple (or thick) ism like the Ismlessism, which even a child can understand, while philosophy is an unbelievably advanced (or genius) ism like meta-ethical relativism, which only university students can understand. The thing I like about Saints is that they only seek posthumous adoration, unlike physically well endowed, flashy, drug addict and show off rock and pop stars. Saints are infinitely better examples for us and our children than pop stars.

At that time Jesus said, “I praise you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children.”

Matthew 11:25
