Like the disciples, we have much to learn on the road to discipleship. Like them, we will often fail. We ought not to be discouraged by these failures; they are a necessary part of our conversion and transformation. Refuse to berate or disparage yourself. Confess your failings, learn from them and move on. The path of discipleship is long, but you can be sure that the risen Christ will bring you home at last.
-Br. David Vryhof, SSJE
