The Paradox of Holiness and Communion

Over at Beginning to Pray, Dr Lilles has an excellent post about the Paradox of Holiness and Communion:

"To be holy is to be set apart. To be in communion is to be in solidarity with one another. Prayer both sets us apart and establishes us in a deeper communion. It is a paradox. Although this mystery is not completely solvable, one hint is the relational dimension of prayer. It is ordered to a real friendship with the all holy God." 

Interesting read, take a walk over and have a look.
