Thought of the Day April 16, 2018 Our mission

By 10:01 AM

“Christian cannot think of his or her mission on earth without seeing it as a path of holiness, for ‘this is the will of God, your sanctification’” (1 Thess 4:4) (Pope Francis) Do we believe this? Our purpose in life is not to be financially successful but spiritually successful, not to be admired by others for our physical achievements, but for our holiness. Leon Bloy, a French writer came to this conclusion at the end of his life. “The saddest thing at the end of one’s life is not to die a Saint.” For then we have failed the most important test of our life. In the words of Jesus: “What good is it to gain the whole world but lose your soul and eternal life?” Have we bought into the lie of Satan rather into the truth of Jesus?
