1st Sunday of Lent 2011

He allows temptation, and uses it providentially to purify you, to make you holy, to detach you more from the things of earth…and above all, to make you humble…

Blessed is a man who perseveres under trial; for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. James1:12

Collected from In Conversation with God, by Fr. Francis Fernandez.
