“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 Peter 1:15-16

TODAY’S WORD…

.

But just as He who called you is holy,

so be holy in all you do;

for it is written: ‘Be holy, because I am holy.’

.

– 1 Peter 1:15-16 (NIV)

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

As Christians – followers of Christ – and by Baptism,

we have been set free from sin

and have been called to live in a fully holy way,

with God Himself as our model.

.

We are all called to holiness!

.

"Christ bids all without exception to be perfect as His heavenly Father is perfect.

For the vast majority of people,

holiness means sanctifying their work,

sanctifying themselves in it,

and sanctifying others through it

– thereby finding God as they go about their daily lives […].

.

Sanctity is not the reserve of a privileged few;

all the ways of the earth, every state in life, every job, every honest occupation, can be divine." (St. Josemaria Escriva)
