In the spirit of St. Augustine who urged his followers to search for God together, consider next Sunday's readings which repeatedly call us to holiness. Yet, in what does holiness consist? The first reading from Leviticus tells us “You shall not bear hatred for your brother in your heart…Take no revenge and cherish no grudge against anyone.” Then in the gospel we hear the familiar commands, “love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” Are these commandments describing what holiness looks like? Perhaps holiness involves gradually relinquishing the resentment that leads to an interior cycle of blame, hatred, and revenge. Perhaps holiness is the ongoing practice of abandoning the self-righteousness that distorts our perception, such that our sisters seem to be enemies and our neighbors, persecutors. Where is resentment or self-righteousness interfering with our relationships today?
