VIRTUE OF THE WEEK
This week we will practice strength. To be strong can be so difficult sometimes. We all experience sadness, hardships, and carry many tasks upon our shoulders. Life will be difficult, so we must go to God, for He is strength and without Him we can do nothing. However strength is not purely being able to conquer temptation and other obstacles that may come our way. Strength can also be shown after we fall; whether it be to temptation or a simple task of our day. We can show strength not only through humility, by accepting and realizing that we have fallen, with a firm purpose of amendment; but also by refusing to be beaten in the future and getting back up. Ready to fight. Ready to face our enemy.
"My God, You are my shield. My God, You are the sword I wield. My God, You are my armor. My God, You are my strength, whom without I could do nothing. Guard me. Guide me. Protect me."
