For the grace of God has appeared, saving all, and training us to reject godless ways and worldly desires to live temperately, justly and devoutly in this age, as we await the blessed hope, the appearance of the glory of the great God of our Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us to deliver us from all lawlessness and to cleanse for Himself a people as His own, eager to do what is good. [ Titus 2:11/14 ]
Therefore, gird up the loins of your mind, live soberly, and set your hopes completely on the grace to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ. Like obedient children, do not act in compliance with the desires of your former ignorance but, as He who called you is holy, be holy yourselves in every aspect of your conduct, for it is written, ‘ Be holy because I am holy.’ [ 1 Pt. 1:13/16 ]
O Immaculate Heart of Mary, Mother of Priests – pray for me and all my brother priests that we might be filled with hope and lead lives that are truly holy.
Amen! Amen! Amen!
