A Feminine Style of Holiness

Sometimes we get so caught up in the hustle and bustle of life that we forget the Good News, the Gospel of Christ.  Oh yes, we keep trudging to Mass, trying to pray, maybe reading a few lines of a spiritual book before we nod off but we lose sight of the real goal of the Christian life.

Holiness

I would say the goal of the spiritual life is to cooperate with Grace, and so grow slowly closer to our Beloved through the power of His death and resurrection. In even simpler terms, God changes us so we can freely receive His love and let it flow through us to others.
This goal—union with God—is not a fairy tale, not only for the saints of old. As Pope Francis has said in GAUDETE ET EXSULTATE, holiness is for all, for all states of life, even for modern, busy people.
