“Consider it all joy, my brothers and sisters, when you encounter various trials, for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. And let perseverance be perfect, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” (JAS 1: 2-4)
“When we encounter various trials,” we have an outstanding opportunity to grow in faith, and our faith can produce perseverance. St. Paul asks us to “let perseverance be perfect, so that we may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” When we look from this angle to “various trials,” we can see them more as an opportunity than a threat.
“I am the way and the truth and the life, says the Lord; no one comes to the Father except through me.” (Gospel Acclamation)
