‘Jesus then said to the Jews who had believed in him, “If you continue in my word, you are truly my disciples, and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.”’ The word translated as ‘continue’ means to abide, continue, dwell, endure, be present, or remain. It is an extremely rich Johannine word, and we may think of abiding in the Word Himself, the Word of God, which truly will set us free.

How do we do this? By our prayer, but also by the choices we make in the everyday, choices of love and sacrifice, love of God and neighbour.

May we truly persevere in this path, and may God bless you.
