"I urge you to live in a manner worthy of the call you have received" Ephesians 4:1

“Do not be afraid of holiness of letting yourself be loved and purified by God. …. Let us allow God’s holiness transmitted to us. Every Christian is called to holiness; and holiness does not consist, first and foremost, in doing extraordinary things, but rather in letting God act. It is the encounter between our weakness, and the strength of His grace”

Pope Francis
