From today’s Gospel: ‘By your endurance you will gain your lives’. St Gregory the Great commented: ‘If the possession of the soul lies in the virtue of patience, it is because patience is the root and protector of all virtues. It is through patience that we possess our souls, for it is only by learning to dominate ourselves that we begin to possess ourselves. Patience consists in suffering serenely the evils coming from others and in being tormented with no resentment against the one who inflicts them’.

Learning to stand firm in the face of the many currents that swirl about us is a God-given grace. May we hold out both our hands to receive it this day, and may God bless you in it.
