Good morning!

It’s a beautiful peaceful morning here in London where I’ve had a late breakfast after mass!

Last night I was out in town and the words of a song hit me!!

It’s called ‘Roar’ by Katy Perry and for any of us who have been victims of injustice the words are very powerful!

ROAR

I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
So I sat quietly, agreed politely
I guess that I forgot I had a choice
I let you push me past the breaking point
I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything

You held me down, but I got up (hey!)
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, your hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready ’cause I had enough
I see it all, I see it now

I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter
Dancing through the fire
‘Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
‘Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar!

Now I’m floating like a butterfly
Stinging like a bee I earned my stripes
I went from zero, to my own hero

You held me down, but I got up (hey!)
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, your hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready ’cause I’ve had enough
I see it all, I see it now

Many of us can relate and while she speaks of a tiger, we can speak of a lion, the lion of Judah!

This last week our mass readings were about David Golliath and the little guy beating the big guy through the power of the Holy Spirit!

So no matter what your situation and no matter what the injustice remember that YOU

Got the eye of the Lord, a fighter
Dancing through the fire
‘Cause He is a champion, and you’re gonna hear Him roar
Louder, louder than a lion
‘Cause He is a champion, and you’re gonna hear HIM ROAR!

So have a roaring day trusting in the justice of the Lord Jesus Christ!
