You say that a good cause will even sanctify war! I tell you, it is the good war that sanctifies every cause!
There is no substitute for the home. Its foundation is as ancient as the world, and its mission has been ordained of God from the earliest times. There can be no genuine happiness separate and apart from the home, and every effort made to sanctify and preserve its influence is uplifting to those who toil and sacrifice for its establishment. There is no happiness without service and there is no greater service than that which converts the home into a divine institution which promotes and preserves family life.
For this is love and nothing else is love,
To which it is reserved for God above
To sanctify to what far ends he will,
But which it only needs that we fulfill.
We do hereby command the Leaders of the Hebrew, Catholic and Protestant Churches to sanctify and have us crowned Emperor of the United States and Protector of Mexico.
Try to sanctify your life by doing service and spreading joy and comfort all around.
A good End cannot sanctify evil Means; nor must we ever do Evil, that Good may come of it.
I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth thy word is truth. As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
The kind of work we do does not make us holy, but we can make it holy. However 'sacred' a calling may be, as it is a calling, it has no power to sanctify but rather as we are and have the divine being within, we bless each task we do, be it eating, or sleeping, or watching, or any other.
Hallow the body as a temple to comeliness and sanctify the heart as a sacrifice to love; love recompenses the adorers.
People should not worry as much about what they do but rather about what they are. If they and their ways are good, then their deeds are radiant. If you are righteous, then what you do will also be righteous. We should not think that holiness is based on what we do but rather on what we are, for it is not our works which sanctify us but we who sanctify our works.
The year becomes new, the day becomes holy, when you sanctify it by spiritual discipline, not otherwise.
But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear.
Sanctify yourselves therefore, and be ye holy for I am the LORD your God. And ye shall keep my statutes, and do them I am the LORD which sanctify you.
