If God is for us, who is against us?

~ Romans 8:31 ~

The first [sign of holiness in today’s world] is solid grounding in the God who loves and sustains us. This source of inner strength … makes it possible for us, in our fast-paced, noisy and aggressive world, to give a witness of holiness through patience and constancy in doing good. It is a sign of the fidelity born of love, for those who put their faith in God can also be faithful to others. They do not desert others in bad times; they accompany them in their anxiety and distress, even though doing so may not bring immediate satisfaction.

Pope Francis
Gaudete et Exsultate, 112

 

Lord

grant me the grace

to remember you are

always with us

regardless

of  what happens.

Help us to be a witness

of your faithfullness

by offering support to

those in need.

Amen
