Daily homily thoughts, 2/5

“Brothers and sisters: Since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us rid ourselves of every burden and sin that clings to us and persevere in running the race that lies before us while keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus…”  We must lay our burdens down if we want to run the race of life well. A person running with his arms filled with stuff will have a much harder time than one who is empty-handed.  Give it all over to ht eLord.  And let us help one another with our burdens.
