“Fear is useless. What is needed is trust.” That is the way Jesus lived and the way he challenged others to live. As children we were afraid of falling. As adults we are afraid of failing. As children we were afraid of loud noises. But as adults we are even more afraid of the constant rumblings and loud noises that come from troubled consciences and from deep seated interior problems. Today let us pray for greater dependence on God which leads to an easier understanding of faith.
