Morality is the system and practise of duty as required by the moral law, consisting chiefly in outward acts, and thus may be observed without spiritual rectitude of heart; morality is of necessity included in all true religion, which involves both outward act and spiritual service.

Holiness is the highest, sinless perfection of any spirit, whether divine or human, tho often used for purity or for consecration.
