There's a saying, 'when the going gets tough, the tough get going.' We might put it this way: We are not among those who draw back and perish, but among those who have faith and will possess life.

You need endurance to do the will of God and receive what he has promised.
(Heb 10:36)

Commit to the Lord your way:
trust in him, and he will act.
By the Lord are the steps of a man made firm,
and he approves his way.
Though he fall, he does not lie prostrate,
for the hand of the Lord sustains him.
(Resp Ps 37)


May the Lord give us the grace of memory and of hope, in order to go forward with perseverance on the journey of our life.
(Pope Francis, Twitter, February 1, 2019)
