The website of the Daughters of Charity worldwide publishes a monthly reflection in six languages, in the form of a video and Power Point presentation, which is very interesting for the meditation of the entire Vincentian Family. We offer here the reflection of January 2019, dedicated to the call to holiness.
This month we will reflect on the Apostolic Exhortation of Pope Francis on the Call to Holiness in today’s world.
“REJOICE AND BE GLAD” (Mt 5:12), Jesus tells those persecuted or humiliated for his sake. The Lord asks everything of us, and in return, he offers us true life, the happiness for which we were created. He wants us to be saints and not to settle for a bland and mediocre existence. The call to holiness is present in various ways from the very first pages of the Bible. We see it expressed in the Lord’s words to Abraham: “Walk before me, and be blameless” (Gen 17:1)
