How to be Alive for Holiness

For the seed to bear fruit, it must first of all be good, alive and able to grow. Placed into the earth, then, at the right depth, its roots will be fed. A covering of good dirt, fertilizer and water follows and then the seed germinates and emerges in buds, flowers and fruit. The meaning is clear: that we be alive and vital for holiness, that our humility be deep enough. If gossip, calumnies and suffering come even from those in whom we confided, we have to await the action of God through prayer and industrious dedication. We are not to stop, but wait…until the Lord makes the moment known. The future holds our reward, heaven which is beautiful and eternal. (Thoughts of Blessed James Alberione)
