Mother Teresa on holiness

I mentioned in my other post about my clandestine trip to the Knights of Columbus Museum last week coinciding with the exhibit on Mother Teresa. My new favorite quote: "Holiness is not the luxury of the few, but a simple duty for you and me."

In other words, don't sit on your hams and think you're doing alright because you're Basically A Good Person. Don't think it's for us to live "in the real world" and leave the holy business to the professionals, aren't they quaint!

And he that taketh not up his cross, and followeth me, is not worthy of me. -Mt. 10:38

I can't just do my eight and skate on this one.
