One day at a time

With the ongoing uncertainty about the virus, some wisdom from the Desert Fathers

Do not be anxious about tomorrow Matthew 6:34

Abba Poeman said: This is said for the person who is struggling and has not much strength, so that he should not be worried, saying to himself “How long must I have this struggle?”.

He should rather say to himself “Today”.
