Hold On and Never Let Go - FOCUS by Fr Bryan Hanifin

The teaching of Jesus for us today in a world where fear and favour jostle for advantage is that we persevere in goodness and never let go of it.

In the face of the forces gathering against him, Jesus reminds his listeners of the old saying, “It is the stone rejected by the builders that becomes the Keystone.” Violence will never win the day. Wrongdoing contains within itself the seed of its own destruction, and the Lord who went to the cross rose that we may live.

St Paul writing to the Philippians, promotes this way of goodness today, “Fill your minds with everything that is true, everything that can be thought virtuous.” This is no easy task and we will need stout hearts to do as Paul urges us.
