We are approaching the end of the liturgical year which will finish with the celebration of the Solemnity of Christ the King. In many gospels that we hear during mass, we see that Jesus is attacked by the religious leaders who want to trap Jesus to eliminate him.
Did Jesus run away? Did he change his way of speaking out the truth? Does he hide himself to keep himself safe? No! He continued being faithful to the Will of his Father and fulfilling his mission. Jesus trusts the Father and finds in him his peace as we proclaim in the psalm today.
We are invited to trust God in the same way and walk by faith as real witnesses of Jesus. I know that for many of you there are situations so difficult that you can barely face them; but when we recite this affirmation from today’s psalm, "In you, Lord, I have found my peace,” we are placing ourselves and our trust in the Lord. Be assured that God is always with you, even when you are in total darkness, or you cannot see or feel him in any way. He won't ever abandon you.
After every cross there is the light of the resurrection, and the greater the cross, the greater is the grace that we receive from it. May the Lord bless you and may the Blessed Mother protect you and your family
