Tonight’s meditation: AND YOU WILL BE A PEOPLE HOLY TO THE LORD AS HE PROMISED! Isn’t it lovely that the Lord makes the promise that we will be holy? It isn’t of our own strength and merit that we are holy, but by His grace. As St. Terese of Liseaux explains in her diary of a soul; His grace acted to prevent her from falling into the mud pit and traps of sin that others fell into. She attributes none of this to her own merit, but completely His grace. However, as she points out, this doesn’t make her any better than anyone else; it was Gods mercy that prevented her from sinning, just as it is Gods mercy who calls back the greatest sinner to repentance. Both are equally grand and noble and point to the wonderful grace and mercy of God who saves us. I find this very comforting. As I say to my kids I will say to all of you: a saint is a sinner who keeps on trying. We brush off our knees after we fall and we stand up again with our eyes on Him and walk forward and follow Him. 🙏
