Be Holy, Be Perfect, Be a Temple

Cycle AOrdinary TimeWeek 7

by Bishop Robert BarronFebruary 19, 2017


Each one of this week's readings speaks of holiness, letting the Divine Life enter into you so that you become set apart. To be holy is to love with a divine indifference, shining on the good and the bad alike. What a revolution this is! Think how different your life would be were you to love this way all the time, rather than measuring out your love based on merit. Dedicate your whole life to love and you will be truly holy, set apart, a sanctuary.
