I have given you a Rock to stand on–do not abandon it for the shifting sand on which the world stands…

2 Thessalonians 2:15 Therefore, brothers, stand firm and hold fast to the traditions that you were taught, either by an oral statement or by a letter of ours.

“My children never before has it been more crucial that you hold fast to what has come to you via Scripture and Tradition. I have given you a Rock to stand on–do not abandon it for the shifting sand on which the world stands. You can see, can’t you, how easily sand is washed out from under you? Remain firmly planted on the Rock. Cling to it; be willing to suffer and die rather than abandon it. It is your passage to eternal life. No matter what happens on earth in this time of great tribulation, once you gain heaven you will never be disturbed again. What is more, you will see all that was accomplished for the kingdom through all you endured. Stand fast. Hold firm. I am with you my children. I am near.”

O Jesus, we cling to you, our Rock and our salvation. We give you thanks and praise for the sure foundation of the Church. May all we do and endure, in the Divine Will, advance your kingdom and win souls for you. Jesus we love you, we trust you, we surrender ourselves joyfully to your loving, perfect will. Amen.
