During the month of March, we ‘press on’ To Be Fit. Fortitude is one of the Cardinal Virtues. It ensures firmness in difficulties and constancy in the pursuit of the good. During Lent, as we strive to become closer to God and to live our lives as God desires, we need to face our temptations and struggles with fortitude. We need to persevere in living our Baptismal calling. We need to use God’s gifts of grace to Press On To Be Fit for a place in His Kingdom!
“Consider it all joy, my brothers, when you encounter various trials,
for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.” James 1:2-3
