1. ĐƯỜNG HY VỌNG (The Road of Hope)_Việt Ngữ & Anh Ngữ
Duty is your passport to heaven. “The person who does the will of my Father in heaven. He will enter the kingdom of heaven” (Cf. Matt. 7:21)
Saints do not become saints through acts of prophecy or performance of miracles. They do nothing extraordinary at all, other than faithfully carrying out their ordinary duties.
The world is not being renewed because people continue to conceive of holiness as something other than carrying out the duties of their state in life.
Despite any superficial appearance of holiness, a person who neglects his duties in life is a spiritual fraud.
Make your duties holy. Help others to holiness through your duties. Grow in holiness by the way you carry out your duties.
If you wish to set off on this road, you must go regardless of what other people may say to ridicule you.
What difference does it make if you leave home for some distant place, perhaps even thousands of miles away, if you continue to bring along all your bad habits, your sinful self?
If you have given up everything, but still have not denied yourself, you have actually not given up anything at all.
Our Lord guides you on to this road so that you will “go and bear fruit” (John 15:16) which will endure.
