A Spiritual Recommendation from Padre Pio who once said:

Aiming higher

" In the spiritual life
you must take one step forward
each day, in a vertical line, from the bottom up."

The exacting challenges of a spirituality lived as an extreme sport! Theologically, this advice is very sound and firmly orthodoxe since it is based on exalting the Lord above all things, reflecting the vertical dimension of our aspirations. The source and goal of our journey is higher than the sky, above and beyond everything that is created, it is beyond all creation, and our life is an ascent, a constant escalation of the creature toward its Creator, exercised daily, in our souls, one step at a time.
