As we seem to begin an emergence from the depths of the Covid-19 pandemic here is, perhaps, for some of us, a new view of what holiness means. Think on it:

Christian holiness can no longer be considered a matter purely of individual and isolated acts of virtue. It must also be be seen as a part of a great collective effort for spiritual and cultural renewal in society, to produce conditions in which all can work and enjoy the just fruits of their labor in peace. (Thomas Merton, Life and Holiness, p. 121)
