Faith

Here’s a bit from Charles de Foucauld’s work, “Meditations of a Hermit”:

“Our Lord asks great faith from us, and he is right.  We owe him great faith.  After our Lord said, ‘Come’ to him, Peter had no more fear and walked upon the waters.  So that when Jesus has quite certainly called us to certain circumstances in life, given us a certain vocation, we need fear nothing, but should attack the most insurmountable obstacles without hesitation.”

In case your spiritual life was in a mode where you needed to hear the word “attack”, consider yourself served… by a hermit.
