Winston Churchill uttered these words when speaking to a school. Persistence matters. It is an aspect of faith. Last week Fr. Ed talked about five aspects of faith. This week the Gospel provides an opportunity to talk about "faithfulness" or persistence in faith. Why does persistence in matters of faith matter? Jesus answered the request of a Samaritan Woman to heal her child after she wouldn't give up and wouldn't go away. He told her she had great faith.
