From the Catechism of the Catholic Church:
1) HOLINESS: CCC 2013 "All Christians in any state or walk of life are called to the fullness of
Christian life and to the perfection of charity."65 All are called to holiness: "Be perfect, as your
heavenly Father is perfect."66
In order to reach this perfection, the faithful should use the strength dealt out to them by Christ's
gift, so that . . . doing the will of the Father in everything, they may wholeheartedly devote
themselves to the glory of God and to the service of their neighbor. Thus, the holiness of the
People of God will grow in fruitful abundance, as is clearly shown in the history of the Church
through the lives of so many saints.67
2) SAINTLINESS: CCC 1719 “The Beatitudes reveal the goal of human existence, the ultimate end
of human acts: God calls us to his own beatitude. This vocation is addressed to each individual
personally, but also to the Church as a whole, the new people made up of those who have
accepted the promise and live from it in faith.”
