What Is Holiness?

  What is holiness? Freedom from sin, and the fullness of every virtue. This is not only attained by a few zealous persons in this life, and that not suddenly, but gradually, by prolonged and manifold sorrows, sicknesses, and labors, by fasting, vigilance and prayer; and that not by their own strength, but by the grace of Christ.
