“Amen, I say to you, whatever you did
for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.”
– Matthew 25 : 31 – 46

A presumed personal holiness that tolerates gossip, backbiting and envy; that allows harshness of judgment, and fits of impatience and irritability; that takes on airs of self-importance and condescension, is no holiness. Holiness is the perfection of love. And love, lest we forget, “is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things” (I Corinthians 13: 4-7).
