Stand erect, hold your heads high. LUKE 21:25–28, 34–36
Today, as we begin the first week of Advent, Saint Luke presents a rather dramatic but soothing and encouraging story. First of all, he strongly insists that in the midst of trials and tribulations we ought to be steadfast in faith and: “Stand erect, hold your heads high”.
While it is only normal and natural to panic when unexplainable events occur, Saint Luke cautions us that we must not be too overwhelmed and lose sight of Jesus but we must: “Stand erect, hold your heads high”.
