I remember hearing the the word “Holy” means to be set apart by God. God set us apart so we are holy. And this reading reminds me of holiness. God loves us, we are His children. I can doubt that I don’t deserve to be His Child but God says that is what I am. God says I am holy, so need to work of being who I was created to be.
Cling to this knowledge that each person is a holy work of God. Knowledge is power. God is a Father that holds nothing back, He gave His Son to save us. In this year of Mercy I continue to be grateful for God’s mercy.
