what does it mean that the saints attained perfection while on earth?
did they conquer all evil in themselves? did they properly order all their appetites or just not act on disordered appetite? or did they pay the proper price for the sins of their lives?

Where did the line "saints attained perfection while on earth" come from? That is not a Catholic doctrine.

Saints have attained heaven, where they are perfected - just like you or I will should we die in friendship with God, after purgatory we will attain perfection - they are examples for us because they were sinners, just like us, who trusted God and died in His friendship.
