(St. Jerome, Priest and Doctor of the Church)
Jesus said, “Foxes have dens and birds of the sky have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to rest his head.” Lk_9:57-62
If we’re looking for comfort, if we’re looking for a cozy nest, Jesus is saying we won’t find it with Him. The road to Heaven is not paved with laziness and comfort. Rather what we’ll find there is some hard work, some study, some preaching and some rejection. But what we’ll receive in return is the joy we bring to the lives of others. And the more joy we can give, the closer we are to that eternal Home we will someday have. So be steadfast, beloved, and never give up on Jesus!
