Readings of the day:
We forget so quickly who we believe in during the times of our troubles, Christ tells us this day, ‘let not your hearts be troubled; believe in God, believe also in me. ‘Life has its way of draining us of our strength, but where peace and trust is found, the soul would find strength in the midst of its troubles. We worry, its not a wrong to, but in our worries, let us fly with its wings to the one who can calm the sea.
Be at peace with your soul, then heaven and earth will be at peace with you. ~St. Jerome.
The Lord, who said he is the way, the truth and the life; would surely find a way in the battle of ‘no way’. The question is ‘Do we believe?’.
I particularly enjoy this quote from St. Alphonsus Liguori: ‘The more a person loves God, the more the reason he has to hope in him. This hope produces in saints an unutterable peace, which they preserve even in adversity, because as they love God, and know how beautiful he is to those who love him, they place all their confidence and find all their repose in him alone.’
May God help us always to find peace in him alone.
Peace and Love of Christ!
