This pattern Of abiding in God . Forms the soul A living loving being . Always intent On holiness. . Image by Renata Re from Pixabay

To live A risen life . Is a change Of understanding . No longer Is mortality . The defining Concept . But love Divine . Love And holiness. . Image by mgowens from Pixabay
There is the risk Of degeneration . Into superficiality Banal clichés . And the pursuit Of pleasure . And power When there is . A higher calling To spirituality . To holiness And to eternity. . Image by Colin Behrens from Pixabay
