Thought of the Day April 12, 2018 Transformation

By 9:57 AM

“We are all called to be holy by living our lives with love and by bearing witness in everything we do, wherever we find ourselves. Are you called to the consecrated life? Be holy by living out your commitment with joy. Are you married? Be holy by loving and caring for your husband or wife, as Christ does for the Church. Do you work for a living? Be holy by laboring with integrity and skill in the service of your brothers and sisters. Are you a parent or grandparent? Be holy by patiently teaching the little ones how to follow Jesus. Are you in a position of authority? Be holy by working for the common good and renouncing personal gain.” (Pope Francis) Every state of life and in the different situations of each state of life are the seed beds of holiness. They become means to holiness “by living our lives in love.” They also become teachable moments when through them we witness God’s grace and love to others. We are transformed into holiness and others are potentially encouraged to follow the same path.
