"My child, when you come to serve the Lord,
prepare yourself for testing,
Set your heart right and be steadfast, and
do not be impetuous in time of calamity.
Cling to him and do not depart, so that
your last days may be prosperous.
Accept whatever befalls you and in times
of humiliation, be patient. For gold is tested
in the fire, and those found in the furnace of
Trust in him and he will help you; make
your ways straight, and hope in him."
Sirach 2: 1-6
*Sometimes, we always thank the Lord in good
times and in moments of success only. It is
important that we are aware that uncomfortable
situations may arise at times, but always hope
for the best. Trust in Him at all times because
He is our fortress and deliverer. Let us always
pray, "Do not put us to the test, but deliver us
