Tis a lesson you should heed, Try, try again; If at first you dont succeed, Try, try again; Then your courage should appear, For, if you will persevere, You will conquer, never fear; Try, try again.

Perseverance is our virtue for March which VCCA students are focusing on and what an important virtue to have! When we meditate on the perseverance of Jesus Christ and consider that His resurrection life flows in us, what could we be afraid of attempting for Him and when would we stop trying?

More than ever, employers are having a difficult time hiring employees who dont give up and quit. I am very glad Jesus didnt give up when He was here on earth and that He refuses to give up on us now. The world longs for us to live like Christ, people with courage who never give up. Let us be a blessing to others with the virtue of perseverance for the opportunity to testify that it is not I but Christ in us, the hope of glory.

The Try, Try Again poem teaches the powerful truth that trying, that getting into action brings the courage we thought we needed to start. So if you havent started, try, try again.
