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

3 Simple Rules for a Holy Life


By Pope Benedict said: there are three simple rules for living a holy life:

1. “Never let a Sunday go by without an encounter with the risen Christ in the Eucharist; this is not an added burden, it is light for the entire week.”

2. “Never begin or end a day without at least a brief contact with God” in prayer.

3. “And along the pathway of our lives, follow the road signs that God has given us in the Ten Commandments, read in the light of Christ; they are nothing other than explanations of what is love in specific situations.”

St. Peter’s Square April 13

Don't you just Love our Church! May God protect you, my dear Pope Benedict!
