“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in me, and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.”
– John 15:5
Live the Faith! Tip of the Week:
We simply cannot hope to grow in virtue and holiness by relying solely upon ourselves. Often times we aren’t even aware what virtues we should be growing in. Let us look to the Holy Spirit for the grace and guidance to make small changes toward virtue in our lives.
At the dawn of this new year and decade, make a solemn resolution to do this at the beginning of each month: Ask the Holy Spirit in prayer, “What is one small change You are giving me the grace to make, that will have the biggest positive impact on my life this month?” Make this commitment to abide in the Holy Spirit and seek the wisdom of God, and you will surely grow in virtue.
