How do we grow in our faith? Does it require some secret knowledge, a lab-tested program, or devoting ourselves to the right priest, pastor, or guru?
We grow by welcoming God into the everyday challenges of life and facing our sufferings from his perspective and with his grace. For this reason, we should look carefully at Jesus’ suffering as a model for how to respond to injustice and agony to our own lives.
With daily readings and prayers, “Singing at Midnight” traces the journey of Jesus from the Garden of Gethsemane, to the Cross of Calvary, and finally to the glory of eternity. The Apostle Peter spoke of this path, “Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps” (1 Peter 2:21). By looking at how Jesus’ endured and overcame his trials, we can learn to do the same.
