Holiness of Life


“If we are called by God to holiness of life, and if holiness is beyond our natural powers to achieve (which it certainly is) then it follows that God himself must give us the light, the strength, and the courage to fulfill the task he requires of us. He will certainly give us the grace we need. If we do not become saints it is because we do not avail ourselves of his gift.” ~Thomas Merton, Life and Holiness
