Be Holy As I Am Holy – S+L Lenten Mission starts tonight

Do you want to be holy? As Catholics, our first impulse is (or should be) to say, “Of course!”

But if we’re honest, we can probably recognize some hesitancy in our response. We fear that radically pursuing holiness will be stifling or exhausting. Would my friends still be able to relate to me? Are these ideals compatible with my competitive workplace? How can I contemplate holiness, when forcing myself to stop and pray for fifteen minutes is such a struggle?

We need not flee from God’s invitation to “be holy as I am holy” (Lev 11:44, 1 Pet 1:16). In fact, a good place to start could be turning on the television. Really! This week, S+L is airing a three-part Lenten mission on the theme of holiness. Filmed at St. Peter’s Cathedral Basilica in London, Ontario, the series begins with a Liturgy of the Word. Bishop Ronald Fabbro, CSB presides, while Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB is the guest homilist.

With eleven days remaining until Easter, this could be what you need to restore your focus on repentance and renewal.

Broadcast times: 9:00pm & 1:00am ET / 6:00pm & 10:00pm PT

Wednesday, April 13: Part 1 – Be holy, for I, the LORD, your God, am holy (Liturgy of the Word)
Thursday, April 14: Part 2 – Examples of Holiness in Everyday Life (Evening Prayer)
Friday, April 15: Part 3 – The Holiness of Christians flows from that of the Church (Holy Mass)
