St. Josemaria Escriva explained that: “Christ’s invitation to sanctity, which he addresses to all… without exception, puts each one of us under an obligation to cultivate our interior life and to struggle daily to practice the Christian virtues; and not just in any way whatsoever, nor in a way which is above average or even excellent. No; we must strive to the point of heroism…” (Friends of God, no. 3).
