Fr. Christopher Panagoplos, TOR, reminds us that we don’t face our struggles alone.

“Whether we gaze with longing into the garden, or with fear and trembling into the desert, of this we can be sure—God walked there first. When we who have sinned are challenged now to face the desert, we do not face it alone. Jesus has gone there before us, to struggle with every demon that has ever plagued the human heart. Face the desert we must. Jesus has gone there before us.”
