In this reflection for the Twenty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time, Fr. Erik Arnold shows us that life with Christ is a wonderful adventure, even though it can sometimes be hard and challenging. We can rely on the Lord to give us the strength we need to keep choosing the narrow and hard way.
Following Jesus is the hardest thing we’ll ever do, but the reward and prize of reaching the summit is worth every bit of sweat, effort, and fear that goes into it.
