Imagine waiting for hours, in stifling heat, for the possibility of Mass and the Eucharist

After a car and then bike ride that lasted hours and left him exhausted and covered in sweat and dirt he found the villagers eagerly and patiently waiting for Christ.

Though Africa seems so distant we must see and seek to model their example of faith and perseverance.  This is the dirty and difficult road on the journey towards sanctification that must be faced with patience and hunger for Christ.  A way that we will either seek by choice or be forced to follow in persecution.  If we seek there will be peace and joy in it while we wait for Christ who is coming.
