In this scene from the Lord of the Rings, Frodo sets out on his own to take the ring to Mordor:
What happened to Samwise Gamgee when he entered the water?
- He started to drown.
- Frodo pulled him into the boat.
Why did Sam enter the water even though he couldn't swim?
- He had made a promise to accompany Frodo all the way to Mordor.
- He was going to keep his promise no matter what.
What aspects of God's loyalty to us do we see in Sam's actions?
- God will never leave us, even if we try to leave Him.
- God is willing to sacrifice His very life to protect us.
- Through the Eucharist especially, God stays near us and literally gives us His life.
