I have always found the passage below to be one of the most comforting, assuring and inspiring messages regarding our Faith and the Promise given to us all - in both good times and in times of challenge.
Happy Advent, Happy Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, and Happy Sunday!
"Do not look forward in Fear to the changes in life;
rather look to them with full Hope that as they arise, God, whose very own you are, will lead you safely through all things;
And when you cannot stand it,
God will carry you in His arms.
Do not fear what may happen tomorrow;
the same understanding Father who cares for you today will take care of you then and every day.
He will either shield you from suffering or will give you unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at Peace, and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginations."
- Saint Francis de Sales
