Prepare for Warfare

Our Lord was led by the Spirit to be tempted by the devil. Why did he allow himself to be tempted? So that he might, as our mediator, help us to overcome our temptations, not alone by assisting us, but also by His example. Christ entered the desert with courage and fortitude. He shows us how to fight temptation by his example.

Prepare to engage in war, a war for your souls, so that you may enjoy the Beatific Vision. Please listen to the Audio Sancto sermon: "Merit is Gained Through Temptation".

The Eagle and the Arrow

As with most of Aesop's fables there are various "morals" that can be gathered from the story. Without searching the internet for an answer, what "moral" can you provide? This is intended to be a creative exercise, and not an in depth conversation on Aesop's contradictory morality.

An Eagle sat on a lofty rock, watching the movements of a Hare, whom he sought to make his prey. An archer, who saw him from a place of concealment, took an accurate aim, and wounded the Eagle mortally. The Eagle gave one look at the arrow that had entered his heart, and saw in that single glance that its feathers had been furnished by himself. "It is a double grief to me," he exclaimed, "that I should perish by an arrow feathered from my own wings."
