Living Ordinary Things in an Extraordinary Way

from the Angelus Message of 9.1.02 His Holiness, Pope John Paul II

Afterward John Paul II emphasized that returning to everyday life was not always easy and that sometimes it was hard to re-adjust. "However," he underlined, "it is in everyday life where God calls us to gain a maturity in our spiritual life which consists in living ordinary things in an extraordinary way."

"Sanctity is achieved," he concluded, "by pursuing Jesus without escaping from reality and from trials, but by confronting them with the light and strength of his spirit."


Praise God! Our teacher continues to teach with the simple wisdom of all the saints. We are so tremendously blessed in this great leader of the Church.
