Losing Your Head, Keeping Your Soul

For 22 June 2022, Memorial of Saints John Fisher, Bishop, and Thomas More, Martyrs, based on Matthew 10:34-39

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.
For I have come to set a man against his father,
and a daughter against her mother,
and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;
and one’s foes will be members of one’s own household.
Whoever loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and whoever loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and whoever does not take up the cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Those who find their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it.
