Imitation 3

He who only flees temptations outwardly, and does not pluck out the root, will profit little; indeed, temptation will soon return to him, and he will find himself in a worse condition. By degrees, and by patience and long-suffering, you will, by God's grace, better overcome them than by harshness and impatience. In temptation take counsel often, and deal not roughly with one that is tempted; but comfort him as you would wish to be done to yourself.

Tonight we start our day of recollection with Fr Alan Williams, our very own director of the shrine at Walsingham. We met him briefly when he arrived this evening. Hopefully we will pass on a bit of his words of wisdom when the recollection finishes tomorrow evening!
