“The sweet fragrance of Christ noticed among men [is] not in a sudden burst
of flame, but in the constant red-hot embers of virtues such as justice, loyalty, faithfulness, understanding, and cheerfulness.”
– St. Josemaria Escriva, Christ Is Passing By
For Reflection: What is St. Josemaria communicating about an authentic witness to Christ in this quotation? Of the virtues listed above,
which are “red-hot” in me? Which are growing cold and in what
specific way today can I heat them up?
