This is a quote from today's Office "the Church on earth is already sealed by genuine, if imperfect, holiness."
I'm taking that line as lifelong goal: "I strive for a genuine, if imperfect, holiness." My holiness is imperfect. I have glaring defects of character that are highlighted by my daily life along side six other people in my home. Yet, I've gotten more genuine in these last years as I approach age 40. I like that.
