We all know some holy people. Maybe it’s your parish priest, a local community of religious sisters, or the reverent couple you see at daily Mass. But for some reason, we think their holiness could never be achieved for ourselves. Sometimes we can’t imagine how we could bring holiness into both our work and home life.
Our busy lives seems to leave out God. There is our busy morning routines getting the kids up and out the door. Jobs push us to blur the lines of what is right and what is not quite wrong. Busyness leaves us disillusioned with our marriage, feeling like this is not the life we were dreaming of. Finally, there is so much evil.
How can we be holy in this secular world?
Busyness is what Stefan Cardinal Wyszynski sets out to dispel. Check out a few of our favorite thoughts from his book Sanctify Your Daily Life: How to Transform Work into a Source of Strength, Holiness and Joy.
