Pope’s quotes: We are all holy

A quote from Pope Francis:

“To be holy, it is not necessary to be bishops, priests or religious. … We are all called to be holy! … It is by living with life and offering one’s own Christian witness in our everyday occupations that we are called to become holy; and each person in the condition and in the state of life in which he finds himself. … Every state of life leads to sanctity, if lived in communion with the Lord and in the service of one’s brethren.”

— General audience, St. Peter’s Square, Nov. 19, 2014
