Lifelong Character

“None of us knows the future. None of us knows when we will meet a certain darkness in our lives. None of us knows the moment when the most essential thing will be that the lamps of faith be well supplied with oil, so that we can show the light of Christ to those around us and to those who love us. To be able to do that is not a matter of a moment’s impulsive courage. It is a matter of a person’s lifelong character. It is the outcome of a life well lived in love and in prayer.” Paul O’Reilly SJ, “Hope in All Things”

Hells Canyon, Psalm 91
