Why were the saints, Saints?

Because they were cheerful
 when it was difficult to be cheerful,
patient when it was difficult to be patient,
and because they pushed on
when they wanted to stand still
and kept silent when they wanted to talk,
and were agreeable when they
wanted to be disagreeable.

That was all.
It was quite simple
and always will be.
