We are constantly being enticed off the road onto other roads, which seem very attractive or frankly a whole lot easier to walk along. Roads that often dazzle us with the prospect of comforts and riches and pleasures. Jesus, too, was enticed and tempted to go down these very same roads. So every day he needed to spend time with his Father to reorient himself, to refocus on his true destination.
-Br. Geoffrey Tristram, SSJE
