How Simple Holiness Can BE!

Servant of God Catherine de Hueck Doherty with her son, George.

Have you ever considered that you are being called…called to be a Saint right where you are living, letting your dog outside, and responding to your kids with kindness. Someone who has inspired my thinking lately is Servant of God, Catherine de Hueck Doherty in her 1953 classic, Where Love is God Is. She inspires me to find holiness by infusing my ordinary actions with supernatural perspective and a daily intention to become a Saint.

She wrote, “Somewhere, somehow, we have confused sanctity with drabness, suppression, quirks, fixations, something unhealthy that does not belong to this century of science, fresh air, sun bathing and worship of bodily beauty, comforts and health. Sanctity is so simple, as all things pertaining to God must be…It means much loving. Loving is fun. Loving is joy. Loving is peace. Loving means serving. Loving means forgetting self for others.

What about you? Just for today, how can you harness the moment for holiness- right where you are, doing the next most obvious thing in love and out of love for God?
