Olympic Glory ....

 

 

Many of us will have been watching the Olympic Games and enjoying the many medals won by Team GB.  But the Olympics is more than just medals.  To get there in the first place the athlete have had to put themselves through training that is long, painful and demanding.  Once there, most of them do not get a medal, despite all the time and dedication they have given.  Who would want to run 10,000 metres knowing that Mo Farah is going to win - even if he falls over?

 

There is a similarity to all that effort and our Faith.  We, too, have to deny ourselves some of the things that our secular society takes for granted nowadays.  We, too, have rules and strict guidelines that keep us focused on the 'medal'.  Fortunately for us, everyone who keeps to the training schedule will receive the 'medal'.

 

Something else that is striking about the Olympics is the camaraderie and support among competitors, winners and losers alike.  People from many nations united under the Olympic Flag celebrating their love of sport.  In the shadow of Christ the Redeemer in Rio they have gathered and witness His glory.

 

 

 

 


   

 



Let nothing trouble you

let nothing frighten you

everything passes,

God never changes

patience obtains all

whoever has God wants for nothing

God alone is sufficient.

                                                  

                                                       St Teresa of Auila
