  1. saintly

    Sacred is applied to that which is to be regarded as inviolable on any account, and so is not restricted to divine things; therefore in its lower applications it is less than holy. That which is sacred may be made so by institution, decree, or association; that which is holy is so by its own nature, possessing intrinsic moral purity, and, in the highest sense, absolute moral perfection. God is holy; his commands are sacred. Holy may be applied also to that which is hallowed; as, "the place whereon thou standest is holy ground," Ex. iii, 5. In such use holy is more than sacred, as if the very qualities of a spiritual or divine presence were imparted to the place or object. Divine has been used with great looseness, as applying to anything eminent or admirable, in the line either of goodness or of mere power, as to eloquence, music, etc., but there is a commendable tendency to restrict the word to its higher sense, as designating that which belongs to or is worthy of the Divine Being. Compare PERFECT; PURE.

How to use saintly in a sentence?

  1. Corine Fairbanks:

    The pope stating that this person is someone saintly, or someone to be looked up to, or even revered or prayed to is giving the international message that what happened (to indigenous people), was by divine right, thousands, hundreds of thousands of people were killed all in the name of Catholicism and progress, so to speak.

  2. Julio Aguilar/Getty Images:

    Yeah, they’re called the Saints, i don’t think they’re very saintly. A Saint would have probably let us score once or twice yesterday. So gotta rethink that nickname.

  3. Pope Francis:

    The first experience went rather well because he’s a saintly and discreet man, and he handled it well, but in the future, things should be delineated more, or things should be made more explicit.
