Perseverance- Every Hair On Our Heads

He asked a favor of her, “My Elizabeth, suffer with heroism, with perseverance and constancy.” (Jesus) (December 5, 1964)

Today’s Readings: You will be hated by all because of my name,
but not a hair on your head will be destroyed.
By your perseverance you will secure your lives.” (Luke 21)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, today we read about not only how it was to be for the Apostles after Your Death and Resurrection but how it will be for all of us in these “end times” which started when You ascended to Heaven. Persecution of the Church has waxed and waned and certainly in many part of the world it is a stronger force than ever. Here in our country, we feel the effects of increasing secularism and materialism. Lord, You have asked us to persevere, whether the Gospel is in season or out of season (2 Timothy 4:2). You have also asked us to persevere in our individual lives as all of us deal with suffering and pain in one form or another be it great or small. Lord help us to suffer with heroism, perseverance, and constancy because You care about every hair on our heads!
