Podcast from Fr. Jeremiah, CFR. The feeling of being abandoned by God is perhaps one of the most common human experiences. However, we must ask, is it true? Is it possible for God to abandon us? What God invites us to in those moments of darkness is not to despair but to mature faith. God allows us to experience these difficult moments so our faith can rest on nothing but God alone. Hence, the moments of darkness in our life can actually become our greatest blessings, provided we reach beyond what we can feel in faith to the Living God who can never abandon us.
