Thought of the Day April 11, 2018 Holiness and love

By 11:16 AM

“Holiness is the most attractive face of the Church.” (Pope
Francis) One of the four marks of the Church, founded by Jesus is
holiness. The Church is not a physical building but the people
who form the Body of Christ and who are journeying together to
God. It is the holiness of this people that has drawn others to
believe and to become part of the Church. What is holiness?
Love! We are called to be holy as God is holy. God is love. When
we live and act in love we are reflecting the holiness of God. True,
authentic love attracts others. Why are people attracted to the
Saints, both living and dead? Is it not their holiness of life; the way
they reflected love? It is God’s will that we be holy. It is God’s will
that we love as he loves.
