Leviticus 19:2 Speak to all the congregation of the people of Israel and say to them: You shall be holy, for I the Lord your God am holy.
“My children, are you holy? Is every aspect of your being oriented to holiness? Why hold back? It is the evil one who tempts you to think that you are losing something by becoming holy. Do not be deceived! For what you gain is unimaginable to the human mind. The enemy knows this and he fears holy souls, so he will use every trick to dissuade you from growth in holiness. Cling to my Mother. She will lead you always on the path to holiness. Cling to the rosary. Cling to the cross. Accept everything as a gift from God, for the Lord can use everything to defeat evil. A holy soul understands this. My children, be holy as your heavenly Father is holy.”
Beloved Father, Abba, perfect and holy, make our hearts like unto Thine. How weak we are! But in your holy will we are invincible. Grant us every grace we need to become holy in every aspect of our lives. We place all our trust in you, beloved Father, through Jesus and Mary. Amen.
