“Christ at 33” – by Hofmann

“As long as we live in this world our life is a constant struggle between love for Christ or giving in to lukewarmness, to our passions, or to comfort-seeking, which destroys love.  Faithfulness to Christ is forged each day by struggling against whatever separates us from him, and by an effort to make progress in virtue.  Then we will be faithful both when times are good and when they are difficult, when it seems few remain by our Lord’s side.”  (Francis Fernandez from In Conversation with God, Volume Two, page 418)
