Thought for Sunday from C.K. Chesterton: To Fight the Losing Battle

"I now realize that we are trying to fight the whole world, to turn the tide of the whole time we live in, to resist everything that seems irresistible....The one perfectly divine thing, the one glimpse of God's paradise on earth, is to fight a losing battle -- and not to lose it."

Have hope!

 All who serve according to the will of God are fighting a winning battle. Remember that the greatest win of all came at the moment of what looked like the greatest defeat. The death of Christ on the cross was the defeat of sin and the salvation of the world. Have courage and persevere in trust. We serve a Master who is Lord of the universe. He wins and His army tastes the victory.

O my Jesus, let everything I do be for love of You, for the conversion of sinners, and in atonement for sins against the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
