.- During the Mass of All Saints, Bishop Francisco Polti of Santiago del Estero told the faithful, “We do not need to seek out holiness in spectacular actions, but rather in the little things of every day. In our homes, in our places of work, and through the tasks of daily life.”
 
“The Lord calls everyone to holiness, not just a few,” the bishop said.  “The vocation to holiness is universal, that is, it’s for you and for me, for all men and women.”
 
Citing the words of John Paul II, who often repeated that “all Christians, no matter what their class or condition, are called to the fullness of life and the perfection of love,” Bishop Polti stressed that Catholics should be “firm in their struggle to achieve holiness and remember that we need the grace of God for this task and that we can count on divine help.”
 
“The riches of holiness which the lives spent in the service of God in the Church in Argentina present to us are a treasure of holiness that enrich each one of us, the Argentina people and the entire universal Church,” he added.
