In speaking to many of you about various topics, issues and situations in your life, I thought of these two simple words: TAKE COURAGE!" Courage is the will to move on against all odds while trusting that all will be well.
Our world, our Church and our lives today are very challenging. We feel all these disappointments, tensions, setbacks, worries and trying moments. Darkness seems to be calling on darkness. There are moments when all we see is a darkness. Amidst all these, the most striking solace is God. Courage in him is not a guarantee of no toils or pain but an assurance that following him – the way, the truth, and the life – brings an amazing hope that all can be calm. We are urged therefore to live our lives with courage and hope in him, because cut off from him we can do nothing.
