Day 9: Ascetic Obligation

“We must work so that the proverb of Solomon may never be true:  ‘I have passed through the field of the idle man and brambles covered it.’  Where laziness abounds, there thorns grow.  Our souls must be fertile with the Word of God, painted with trees of virtue, made green with desires of eternal life and adorned with the example of the saints.”

Let us pray:  Lord, through the intercession of Your Faithful servant, Anthony of Padua, may we produce fruit worthy of our message.  Through Christ our Lord Amen.
