Fr. Robert Bengry: Sanctify the Ordinary


God has placed most of us in ordinary circumstances. In a culture of celebrity, one might wish to live an extraordinary life; almost every young person I talk to wants to be rich. But really and truly, the sanctification of the ordinary is a much better path. You can grow closer and closer to God by living an ordinary life of care, forgiveness, joy and kindness. Grow in godliness little by little right where you are and you will find joy and satisfaction. — Fr. Robert Bengry
