1910 New Catholic Dictionary
A term in Christian practise for a closer conformity to Gospel ideals than salvation demands. When the young man asked Our Lord what he should do to be saved, the answer was explicit:
"Keep the commandments. If thou wilt be perfect, go sell what thou hast and give to the poor. And come follow me." (Matthew 19)
"Be you therefore perfect, as also your heavenly Father is perfect." (Matthew 5)
