Sainthood bid opens for Fr. George J. Willmann, SJ

The Cardinal then focused on the question: What does it mean to be holy? With the opening of the Cause, he said that Fr. George J. Willmann, St. Ambrose and Mother Mary all responded to sanctity and holiness. Cardinal Tagle clarified that “Holiness is an attribute of God and not man’s achievement nor his work. It is God who is Holy and our holiness is a gift of God – our oneness with Him”.

Cardinal Tagle added that the message of the First Reading is that the Holiness of God is seen with marvelous work – like transforming a desert into a garden filled with water and flowers where we are able to drink from God’s goodness with a safe road along the holy way. The desert symbolizes humanity that is seen to be dry, fruitless, empty and even lifeless. However, when God enters, all these are transformed into a bountiful garden. God’s Holiness always creates miracles. “Whenever we experience hopelessness loaded with faults, we must not be afraid for that is the time when God will come to infuse His Holiness and cure the sickness. That is the Good News”. Cardinal Tagle added that during this season of advent, we must look deeper into our deserts in order to experience the Holiness of God.  read more »
