Called To Be Holy

by Father Brian J. Soliven on Sunday January 15, 2023

We're not all meant to have churches named after us but we're all called to be holy, glorious, eye-blistering saints. Impossible you say? Your sins are too big? Your love too small? Your faith is more fragile than a snowflake? If this is true about you, then you're precisely whom Jesus wants. Listen to words of St. Paul from the Second Reading, "you who have been sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be holy." (Cf. 1 Corinthians 1:1-2) Without Christ, this mountain is insurmountable. However, I remember reading somewhere, "With God, all things are possible." What's my excuse now?
