Be Holy (Lev 19:2)

The Lord said to Moses, “Speak to the entire assembly of Israel and say to them: ‘Be holy because I, the Lord your God, am holy.'" - Leviticus 19:2


O everlasting God,


With the heavenly angels we declare

that You are holy, holy, holy.


You alone, Lord define holiness.

Apart from You, there is nothing holy.


What a marvelous mystery

that You command us to emulate your holiness.


How can this be?


In our broken and feeble nature

how could we possibly be holy as You are holy?


There is only one way.


By the blood of Jesus,

You have made us holy.


The incarnation,

the crucifixion,

and the resurrection

of the God-Man

has earned holiness for the entire human race.


You have revealed to us the path leading to perfection.


Help us, Lord, to walk in it.


path to holiness - leviticus 19:2

Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect

Matt 5:48
