1 Corinthians 7:14 For the unbelieving husband is made holy through his wife, and the unbelieving wife is made holy through her husband.
“My children do not be afraid, but concentrate on your own growth in holiness. The more you grow in holiness, the more souls you will participate in saving. This is especially true with spouses. Where one is holy, the other reaps the benefit as well. For are they not one body? Do not despair but place your hope in me. Spend more effort on changing yourself and you will see how your growth in goodness and virtue has an effect on others.”
Beloved Jesus, I thank you for these words of encouragement and hope. Help me to strive always to grow in holiness, that I might become leaven for those around me. May your light shine through me unimpeded by my sin. Jesus I trust in you! Amen.
(Note from Pelianito: I just want to clarify that our Lord does NOT want us to remain in an abusive situation. It is better to help save one’s spouse from a safe distance if there is abuse involved. My heart goes out to all who are in such a situation and I urge you to get help. You are all in my prayers.)
