Do not behave in the way that you liked to before you learnt the truth; make a habit of obedience: be holy in all you do, since it is the Holy One who has called you, and scripture says: Be holy, for I am Holy.
– 1 Peter 1:14-16
Be Holy, that is, be good and righteous; be like Jesus; be devoted to God and obey His commandments, love Him in all you do, and love all those who you come across in life – irrespective of whether they love you back or not.
Jesus was like that; He is our Holy Mentor – our role model – and He sent His Holy Spirit to guide us and to make us holy …just like Him.
“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 […]. …my teaching has been that 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
there’s something inside of me I find so difficult to describe.
It like a fire burning inside of me and it burns for You.
Lord, help me keep it burning, as I feel Your holy presence in my life.
Be with me in all I do, Lord,
and teach me how to do whatever it is You want me to.
Everything I do, I wish to be a prayer;
a token of my love for You
and of my desire to somehow start to reciprocate the great love which You have for me.
Lord, please, shine the light of Your love upon me,
fill me with Your Spirit
and make me more like You.
Lord, make me holy. Amen
