January 15 – Saint Peter the First Hermit

He died at the age of 113, after having seen his parents die, persecutions against the Church, betrayals of his own family and all type of suffering and difficulties. When his brother-in-law turned against Peter and almost reported him, Peter chose to escape to the desert and hide in a cave. He thought he would be there only until the persecution ended, but he liked the life of prayer that he stayed living there for the rest of his life. 

How do you react to problems? Do you try to take revenge or defend yourself, or do you look for support in prayer?
