Lenten Reflections, February 10

Fr. Joseph-Mary Hertzog, OP, a Dominican priest at St. Louis Bertrand, has graciously offered to provide daily Lenten reflections for the St. Louis Bertrand Young Adults (check out the website for some great events!)

I will also be posting the reflections to this blog.  Here is the reflection for today:

“As Augustine observes, even as “the same fire makes gold glisten and straw reek,” so by the same scourges [of the present life] are the good cleansed and the wicked worsened on account of their impatience.  Hence, though the scourges are common to both, satisfaction is only on the side of the good.” – St. Thomas Aquinas
