Piety: Perfection of Religion



Piety is a sanctifying gift of the Holy Spirit, the instinctive affection for God to render Him worship and service, and please those specially consecrated to Him. Piety perfects the virtue of religion, and the contemplation of the Almighty Father with love, filial respect and affectionate obedience.

“All who are guided by the Spirit God are sons of God; for what you received was not the spirit of slavery to bring you back into fear; you received the Spirit of adoption, enabling us to cry out, ‘Abba, Father!’ The Spirit himself joins with our spirit to bear witness that at we are children of God. And if we are children, then we are heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ, provided that we share his suffering, so as to share his glory. In my estimation, all that we suffer in the present time is nothing in comparison with the glory, which is destined to be disclosed for us, for the whole creations waiting with eagerness for the children of God to be revealed.” (Romans 8:14-19)
