 Prayer to be Holy

L. "Therefore, you are to be perfect.
R. As your heavenly Father is perfect." (Mt. 5:48)

 Lord Jesus, You have called us to be Your disciples and to take up our crosses and follow You. You want us to be holy and to live in such a way as to be pleasing to our heavenly Father.

 Help us to be holy as You are holy. Teach us through the scriptures to be humble as You were humble; loving as You were loving; prayerful as You were prayerful.

 Fill us with Your Holy Spirit so that we may be as zealous in spreading the message of the gospels as Your apostles were on the day of Pentecost.

 Remind us often to turn to Your mother, our Blessed Lady, for help, strength and guidance as we make our journey through life and strive to overcome our human weaknesses.

 We want to do God's Will; we want to offer all we are to Him in the hope that one day in His mercy he will call us to be with Him and You and the Holy Spirit forever and ever.
Amen.

Lord Jesus Christ

you have taught us to be merciful like the heavenly Father, and have told us that whoever sees you sees Him.

   Show us your face and we will be saved.

Your loving gaze freed Zacchaeus and Matthew from being enslaved by money;

the adulteress and Magdalene from seeking happiness only in created things;

made Peter weep after his betrayal,

and assured Paradise to the repentant thief.

   Let us hear, as if addressed to each one of us, the words that you spoke to the Samaritan woman:

“If you knew the gift of God!”

   You are the visible face of the invisible Father,

of the God who manifests his power above all by forgiveness and mercy:

let the Church be your visible face in the world, its Lord risen and glorified.

You willed that your ministers would also be clothed in weakness

in order that they may feel compassion for those in ignorance and error:

let everyone who approaches them feel sought after, loved, and forgiven by God.

   Send your Spirit and consecrate every one of us with its anointing, so that the Jubilee of Mercy may be a year of grace from the Lord, and your Church, with renewed enthusiasm, may bring good news to the poor, proclaim liberty to captives and the oppressed,

and restore sight to the blind.  

   We ask this of you, Lord Jesus, through the intercession of Mary, Mother of

Mercy; you who live and reign with the Father and the Holy Spirit for ever and

Ever.         Amen.

What does it mean to be holy? Does it mean we have to be on our knees 24 hours a day?
   Does it mean we have to lock ourselves away in a monastery so that the world will not lead us into temptation?
  There are those who would go that route in life, but holiness doesn't have to be that dramatic.
   For me, holiness is being aware that I am made in the image and likeness of God and that He wants me to refect that image wherever I go.
   Holiness is living in the presence of God at work, at home, in school, on vacation and in church through the ways in which we interact with and love others, forgive others, care about others and even ourselves.
   We have been given the precious gift of life. We have been blessed with talents and abilities. Do we live in such a way as not to offend God or waste those precious gifts no matter what circumstances we fnd ourselves in? That is what it means to be holy.
   Let us ask God to live up to that holiness every day of our lives.
