Pop-Up Catechesis: Understanding Holiness

Pop-Up Catechesis with Joe Paprocki

I think that holiness is one of the most misunderstood concepts in spirituality. That’s unfortunate, because holiness is something that we are all called to! Too often, holiness is equated with being pious. While I have nothing against piety, it is mostly thought of as being “devoutly religious,” which usually translates into “someone involved in a lot of church activities.” The problem with that is it confines holiness to the church campus and makes it difficult for us to picture what it means to be holy at home, at work, or at play. In this episode of Pop-Up Catechesis, we explore an understanding of holiness as “resembling God”—something we can do wherever we are!
