Path of Holiness

Oh God,

I come before You to thank You for the gift of holiness.

I rediscover each day the graces and blessings bestowed,

to know how to witness to Your presence.

Yes, I am faced with difficulty and troubles

caused by illness or distress or sorrow.

Sustain me and keep me aware of the path to holiness,

a way of compassionate justice,

a way to grow in Love.

I pray as a child of Faith,

to remain attentive and respond with Joy

to the call You made.

I pray as a parent and a grandparent,

signs of my fatherhood and motherhood.

Oh God,

You entrusted me with the care of body and soul of my family

and I understand that the family can give the world well-being.

Grant that each family takes the path of holiness,

to be just and merciful

and answers the call to become apostles

in the service of Peace

and the confidence of Hope

in communion with all persons.

Indeed it is.

In the movie "Harvey", Elwood P Dowd, played by Jimmy Stewart, explains coping with the world this way: "Years ago my mother used to say to me, she'd say, 'In this world, Elwood, you must be' - she always called me Elwood - 'In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.' Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me." Well, for years I was smart, oh so very smart, I too recommend pleasant - Trust the harmony
