Gospel: Jn 6:16-21
”It is I, don’t be afraid.”
When we are confronted by turbulence and trials, Jesus comes to us to strengthen our faith and draw us nearer to Him. As long as we are here on earth, we will have our never-ending trials to undertake, one after another, like riding a roller-coaster. That’s why we need an anchor to hold onto, as we plunge into the valley of despair, and ride up to seek for Christ’s light.
We come out of these trials with more resolve, purified and more humbled as we feel God’s love. We seek our Mother’s hand in ours, seek comfort in her closeness, knowing that the Lord will listen to His Mother to answer our pleas.
We are forged through whatever challenges we find on our way.
