Fr. Robert Nixon emphasizes that true sanctity stems from pure faith and constant trust in God, rather than extraordinary manifestations of holiness seen in saints’ lives. Fr. Robert highlights the importance of complete submission to God’s will, fulfilling one’s duties, and viewing all life’s roles as part of a divine vocation. Through this abandonment, one achieves peace and aligns with God’s loving plan, experiencing the journey towards heaven with tranquility and joy.
