He continued: “And you will tell me: of course! They are Our Lady and Saint Joseph! Yes, but let us not think it was easy for them: saints are not born, they become thus, and this is true for them too.”
According to Catholic doctrine Our Lady was conceived without original sin and therefore born a saint. Francis is know for often speaking without thinking.
