Podcast from Fr. Luke Mary Fletcher, CFR. Jesus' message of mercy is both comforting and convicting at the same time. How we treat our neighbor in this life will set how God treats us in the next. He loves us, wants us all in heaven, and gives each the sufficient grace needed. The rest us up to our use of free-will...

Jesus said, "And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul; rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a penny? And not one of them will fall to the ground without your Father's will. But even the hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not, therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows" (Matt 10:28-31).

“It has been just a simple surrender, a simple ‘yes’ to Christ in allowing Him to do what He wants. The hand tells the pencil and the pencil obeys. That is why the work is His work. I’m just a little pencil in His hand. Tomorrow, if He finds somebody more helpless, more stupid, more hopeless, I think He will do still greater things with her and through her.”
“My own Jesus, do with me as You wish – as long as You wish without a single glance at my feelings and pain. I am your own. Imprint on my soul and life the sufferings of Your Heart.”

Where has God gone? Is it possible for him to disappear? Perhaps the one who is disappearing is you; your childish ways of relating to God, yourself and other people, your inordinate desire for affirmation and consolation are becoming purified through a genuine encounter with the Living God. Since God is no longer a “felt presence” in your life you are left wondering if God has disappeared. Let me assure you, it would be easier for the ocean to dry up than for God to disappear.

Podcast from Fr. Jeremiah, CFR
Most of our fears are the result of believing a story that simply is not true. Jesus' question "Why are you afraid?" confronts us with the many lies we have believed about ourselves, other people and God. It is only by looking at Him, who is reality and truth, that we can overcome our fears and experience the freedom that is ours as children of God.
