Today we remember the Prophet Elias, the Glorious prophet from the First Testament. His life recalls all the hardships of choosing to stay faithful to God in an age where such faithfulness is unpopular. It also reminds us of the temptation in such faithfulness to forget that we aren’t the only ones who are staying true to the Faith.
Are you choosing to continue the faithfulness to the Lord when it isn’t easy to do so, or is there a subtle (or not so subtle) temptation to “lighten up” the commitment to a purposeful practice of the faith especially in a day when being faithful is made fun of and ridiculed and even called “bigoted.”
The life of the Prophet Elias teaches us how to stay faithful AND humble all at the same time!
