  4. Jesus’ Example of Holiness
  5. Jesus taught us that in order to go to Heaven, we have to do to God's will. He also taught us that we must always accept him as our Lord, even until death, and to always humble our selves under God, such as little children.
  6. Jesus is our Savior. He has great love for us all and wants to bring forth the best in all of us. He wants us to be pure, to be holy and to be happy. He wants us to go to Heaven with him in Eternal life. This is why he accepted his death without hesitation and sacrificed himself for our sins. He died for me, for you, and for all of humanity.

  8. How do we become Holy?
  9. By humble Recognition of God’s Grace
  10. Sources of God's Grace
  11. Prayer a. How should I pray? Pray from the heart. b. How often should I pray? "As often as the beating of your heart." - Saint Escriva. We should live in the spirit of prayer by maintaining a constant communication with God throughout the day. c. "Ora et Labora" - "Ora est Labora". Our daily offering of all our prayers, actions and sacrifices makes a big difference because everything takes on a spiritual value. We maintain Christ's presence in everything we do.
  12. Sacrifice a. "Do ordinary things extra- ordinarily.“ b. "The measure of love is sacrifice. The greater the sacrifice, the greater the love. The lesser the sacrifice, the lesser the love." - St. Alphonsus Liguori.
  13. Sacraments a. Frequenting the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Communion. b. Deeper understanding of the Sacraments.
  14. 2. It is in knowing Him, loving Him, serving Him and being united with Him that we can be holy and achieve perfect happiness in HEAVEN. 1. It is by the will of God that all of us be holy in whatever state of life we are called. Cf. I Thess. 4:3, Matt. 5:48 3. It is basically by way of the cross that holiness or spiritual progress passes by and there is no holiness without renunciation and spiritual battle, hence, the need for constant prayers.
