To be a saint is to conform one's mind, soul, heart to the mind, soul, heart of Christ.
Daily, to pray constantly, while working, walking, waiting in line, using memory, understanding and will to be like Christ. The frequent participation in the sacraments is essential, for without sanctifying grace, one cannot be holy.
Reading and studying Scripture shows one the mind of Christ, as does the teaching of the Church. One cannot be a saint without first being orthodox.
To be a saint is to be an obedient son or daughter of the Church. Lastly, good works flow from holiness, the result of all the above. For a parent not to baptize a child is to deny that person years of formation.
