Personal holiness is not centered in the fight against sin but rather in love for the Risen Lord Jesus. ‘
If we really are to love our Lord, we must get to know Him. How can this happen? By taking regular time to meditate on His life in Sacred Scripture, most especially the Gospels. So, too, do we encounter Him in persistent prayer.
Remember: love is not a feeling, even though these may be given to us by Our Lord so as to help us live more generously. Genuine love is a choice. It occurs to the degree we dare to make God’s will our own way of living.
