From today’s New Testament reading, from 1 Peter: ‘As he who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in all your conduct; since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.”’

St Francis de Sales said: ‘Holiness is found in a path opened to us in our daily lives; the duties of our daily lives are offered to us with unequal attractiveness’.

So, this day, let us take up the challenge of allowing the Holy Spirit to make us holy, in the simple and humble tasks of the day; and may God bless you.
