Cardinal Cipriani: today’s society twists call to holiness

.- The Archbishop of Lima, Cardinal Juan Luis Cipriani said this week that today’s society makes people believe that holiness is the exclusive call of a select few, when “it is nothing more than achieving the same feelings, thoughts and works of Christ.”
 
“We are all invited to make our family, culture, sports, politics, economics, recreation and illnesses a path to holiness,” the cardinal said during Sunday Mass.

He called on the faithful to express their love for the Holy Trinity by seeking holiness. “Being good people is not enough.  Not being bad or not doing wrong to others is not sufficient. We must love everyone.  We must seek Christ in others,” he warned.

The Peruvian cardinal also encouraged the faithful to participate in the celebration of Corpus Christi and he prayed to the Blessed Mother that all Peruvian families would become a reflection of the life of communion that exists in the Holy Trinity, in the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
