Word for the Day

16 Saturday 1st week of Lent

Being poor of heart: that is holiness (Gaudete et exsultate 70). 

Matthew 5:43-48 
‘Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.’

Holiness does not consist in warm feelings. If God gives them, I can thank him, but I may not consider them the main thing. True holiness is childlike self-surrender. … If we willingly place ourselves at his disposal, he can do all sorts of things, but what he does is always for our best and his greater glory. (Retreat 1937 – JK)
