Holiness Makes Relationships Better


By Carrie Gress

This is one of my favorite pictures ever. Our culture, being what it is, makes it incredibly difficult for love and trust to flourish between religious and the young. And we see it in action, it is like a balm to the soul... for all of us.

What is often missed, however, is that the holier or the purer of heart a person is, the better he is at loving others. I love this image of Pope Saint John Paul II and St. Teresa of Kolkuta because it conveys this deep friendship that can only be had by two people who have been scoured of selfishness.
