GOD AND ME

“Your ordinary contact with God takes place where your fellow men, your yearnings, your work and your affections are. There you have your daily encounter with Christ. It is in the midst of the most material things of the earth that we must sanctify ourselves, serving God and all mankind. “
St Josemaria Escriva

ALL CALLED FOR HOLINESS



Holiness, St Francis taught, is for everyone – from housewife to queen, from soldier to pope.   He was one of the first to open the gates of methods of holiness to all and sundry.   By his time in the history of the world most could read – then as now – there is really no excuse.   Much more so in our time – everything to assist on the pathway to holiness is at our fingertips.   WE ARE ALL called to be and CAN BE SAINTS!

GOD'S GRACE

I see a fish expiring as soon as it is taken out of the water, and I say: “That is me! If they take me out of Your embrace, I shall die in seconds—like a fish tossed onto the sand.”
- St. Nikolai Velimirovich, Prayers by the Lake, XI
