Author Matthew Kelly asks “What does the world need now?
Holy moments! That’s all! History is a collection of holy and unholy moments. Our desire to see the world change is a desire to see the holy moments outweigh the unholy ones.
What is a holy moment? It is a moment when you make yourself completely available to God. You set self-interest aside. You set aside what you want to do or feel like doing, and for that moment . . . you do what you sense God is calling you to do.
The saints are our friends trying to show us the possibilities in our lives to live these holy moments. The only difference between us and the saints is they made themselves 100% available to God and lived holy moments almost constantly. The truth is, you are just as capable of collaborating with God every day to create holy moments as the saints were.
Kelly reminds us that the world doesn’t need another Mother Teresa or St. Francis of Assisi. The world needs you . . . fully alive and collaborating with God every day to create as many holy moments as possible. God knows exactly what we are capable of in collaboration with Him. Allow God to raise up the saint in you . . . this is what your corner of the world needs now more than ever before in our lifetime.
Stay centered in Christ……pick up your cross and follow Him like the saints did.
Blessings, Jeanne Leonardi
