Memorial of Saint Justin, Martyr


Jude 17, 20-25;                      Ps 63: 2-6;                  Mk 11: 27-33




In the struggles of life, we often find ourselves seeking something solid to hold on to amidst the chaos. It is like standing in the middle of the storm, desperately grasping for an anchor to keep steady.


Today’s reading reminds us that true salvation doesn’t come from things we see or touch. Instead, it’s something rooted deeper in the very essence of who we are. It’s about faith. Faith isn’t just a belief we hold on to; it is a lifeline that anchors us when everything else feels uncertain. The passage urges us to cling tightly to this faith, to nurture it like a precious seed planted in the soil of our souls.


Two things lay the foundations of faith: love of God and love of neighbour. If we truly love God, even the darkest of times appear bright. His power and love keep us grounded, give us the strength to carry on, even when the storms rage around us.


Concerning the love of neighbour, Jude reminds us of the importance of being there for one another in our faith journey. When someone in the family is struggling, we don’t turn away or judge them. Instead, we offer a listening ear, a shoulder to lean on, and a hand to help them back up. it is like being part of a big family. When you gather around the dinner table, sharing stories and laughter, but also comforting each other through the tough times. When we see someone on the edge, Jude urges us to step in, to be that beacon of hope in their darkness. It is like being a lifeguard, diving into the waves to rescue someone struggling to stay afloat. We don’t wait for them to ask for help; we jump in because we know that’s what family does. So, let us take this message to heart. Let us love God and be there for each other, let us reach out to those in need, and never forget the unshakeable foundation of faith that binds us together as one family, under the loving care of our Heavenly Father.
