During the month of March, we ‘press on’ To Be Fit. This virtue of fortitude strengthens the resolve to resist temptations and to overcome obstacles in the moral life as we strive to persevere in growth in our spiritual life. Spending some extra time in prayer, attending Mass in person on a weekday, participating in the praying of the stations of the cross, are all helpful ways to overcome the obstacles of temptations as we Press On To Be Fit so as to celebrate the great feast of Christ’s Resurrection!
