“Take the very hardest thing in your life – the place of difficulty, outward or inward, and expect God to triumph gloriously in that very spot. Just there He can bring your soul into blossom.”
~ Lilias Trotter (Parables of the Cross)


What is the “very hardest thing in your life” – today? Where does one turn, how does one proceed when difficulties, like the thorns pictured above, seem to be without relief? This second Sunday in Lent let us consider, with Lilias, how God can bring our souls into blossom at that very place of difficulty.
