Quote of the day: 11 March

At the time of our Lord, if someone had asked who his closest collaborator was, the answer would have been, “It’s Peter… It’s James… It’s John.”

In fact, it was the Virgin Mary in Nazareth although none could see it.

Today, holiness needs to overflow, it needs to reach everyone, permeate all walks and states of life. This is a necessity not only for the consecrated life, the state of perfection but also for any way of life in the world. 

There, too, we have to be saints, just to be saved. Mediocrity is no longer an option.
