"Fighting calls for training”

Tender, soft, flabby...: that's not the way I want you. It's about time you got rid of that peculiar pity you feel for yourself. (The Way, 193)

We were talking previously about the need to fight. But fighting calls for training, a proper diet, urgent medical attention in the case of illness, bruises and wounds. The sacraments are the main medicine the Church has to offer. They are not luxuries. If you voluntarily abandon them, it is impossible to advance on the road, to follow Jesus Christ ...

Saint Josemaría Escrivá
"Human life - your life - and its humdrum, ordinary business, have a meaning which is divine, which belongs to eternity.”
SAINT JOSEMARÍA, Founder of Opus Dei
