CHRISTIAN LIFE




THE GREAT DISEASE

There is a disease that attacks Christians and non-Christians alike--they think the purpose of this life is to enjoy the happiness of this world and escape the evils, trials, and adversities in the world. . .as if there is no future life.

We seem to forget that all men are subject to the same law: whether we are rich or poor, high or low, we must suffer. When a city is captured, everybody suffers; when there is a drought, everybody suffers; when a ship sinks, everybody suffers. Disease and fever are experienced by all. As long as we are in the flesh, we shall suffer.

Christians, because they are attacked and tempted more by the devil, suffer more. "My son, when you come to the service of God. . .prepare your soul for temptations."

St. Cyprian
