The Holy Cross Chapter of the Lay Dominicans Welcomes You
All are called <> Few follow through the narrow gate that is vocation.
As the faithful we are all called into service by way of our baptisms and subsequent confirmation. I would like to insist primarily on the call to holiness that the Lord addresses to each of us, the call that he also addresses, personally, to you: “Be holy, for I am holy” (Lev 11:44; cf. 1 Pet 1:16).
The Second Vatican Council stated this clearly: “Strengthened by so many and such great means of salvation, all the faithful, whatever their condition or state, are called by the Lord – each in his or her own way – to that perfect holiness by which the Father himself is perfect”. (Gaudete et Exsultate, par. 10)
