CHARACTER TESTED


People’s characters are tested in three ways:  by the circumstances in which they live, by the people whom they meet, and by the experiences of their own failure.  Their characters are tested by the degree in which these things draw forth from them love and not bitterness, a humble penitence and dependence upon God and not despair.  (Father Andrew SDC, A GIFT OF LIGHT)
