We have many opportunities to grow in virtue in our day-to-day lives. If we pray for patience, we can be assured there will be circumstances that will arise to give us the chance to practice that virtue. Do we look at such opportunities to grow in virtue as a blessing or a curse? Growth frequently requires sacrifice. Are we truly pursuing holiness, or are we pursuing comfort?
My encouragement to you today is to simply pray for the guidance of the Holy Spirit in your life. Seek the gifts of the Spirit so that your life will bear the fruits of the Spirit. Let us conquer sin in our lives and unite ourselves completely to the will of God. Continue to live these days of Holy Week well.
