What is Holiness?

“Holiness is a selfless openness and response to God’s call in this sacred moment.”

Father Albert Haase, OFM

Recently, i have been reading the book “The Sacred Moment:  Becoming Holy right where you are”  by Father Haase.

His definition of holiness really struck me and I thought I would share it all with you.

Holiness involves selflessness.

It is letting go our own desires and needs and agendas to be attentive to the needs of others in the present moment.

When is the last time you put yourself aside and attended to the other?

Are you aware of the needs of those you rub shoulders with each day?

Are you attune to the moment?
