Do not be afraid of holiness. It will take away none of your energy, vitality or joy. On the contrary, you will become what the Father had in mind when he created you, & you will be faithful to your deepest self…Do not be afraid to set your sights higher, to allow yourself to be loved and liberated by God. Do not be afraid to let yourself to be guided by the Holy Spirit. Holiness does not make you less human, since it is an encounter between your weakness & the power of God’s grace.
Rejoice and Be Glad, Apostolic Exhortation
