Have Faith and Trust

Jesus’ words to his disciples in John’s Gospel today, “Do not let your hearts be troubled,” can be applied to our lives today.   We, as were the disciples, are understandably troubled during these uncertain times.  Let us take Jesus’ advice into our hearts and try our best to maintain hope and trust.  Our world is markedly different from what it was six weeks ago, but in these last few weeks of the Easter season, we still find joy in the truth of Christ’s resurrection.  We need joy.  Where can we find that joy? Who or what brings us joy?  Do you see signs of God’s presence … of his consolation?  Our realization of truth and our openness to God’s presence can reach deep into our hearts and spirits and lead us to a deeper relationship with our loving Lord.  Let us take our troubled hearts to the Father in trust and faithfulness as we listen to Jesus’ words: “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.”
