Heat and Relief

Today, here in the Los Angeles area, we have been dealt with incredibly warm weather.  The high temperature in Anaheim was 114 degrees which is 46 degrees Celsius!  In the midst of the heat, I did several things to try to cool myself down however the effects of such acts were quite transient since the oppressive heat won every single time.

I was reminded of two verses from St. Luke,

"And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame.  But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented."

If I find this heat unbearable, how will I deal with the torment of torments?
