St. Bede the Venerable
There is a popular Christian song entitled, "What do I know of holy?" St. Peter reminds us that what we know of holy is found by looking at and imitating Christ's example.
One more thing: What is Christ's example? In the gospel he tells us that the first shall be last and the last shall be first. His example is of service. With summer upon us, it's a good time to remind your children that by contributing to the family, they are serving others as Christ did. Summertime means more family time and more opportunities to be Christ to those we live with.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, help me to follow your example to holiness. Give me a spirit of service and help me to lead my children to holiness by example. I ask this in your name, through the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen. St. Bede, pray for me.
