Your duty is to sanctify yourself. Yes, even you. Who thinks that this task is only for priests and religious? To everyone, without exception, our Lord said: Be ye perfect, as my heavenly Father is perfect. St. Josemaria

Food for Thought Friday

"It doesn't matter what age you are; it doesn't matter what your position is or what your circumstances are or who you are; you have to CONVINCE yourself, COMMIT yourself, and DESIRE holiness.. You well know that holiness does not consist in extraordinary graces received in prayer or unbearable mortification and penance; nor is it the inheritance only of those who live in lonely oases, far from the world..

HOLINESS consist in faithful and loving fulfillment of ONE'S DUTIES, in joyful and humble acceptance of God's will, in union with HIM in your everyday work, in knowing how to fuse religion and life into a fruitful and harmonious unity and in all sorts of other ordinary little things you know so well.

This path seems...

The path is SIMPLE and CLEAR.

CONVINCE yourself..

DECIDE, DESIRE!
