When I am afraid

"When I am afraid, I put my trust in you,

In God, whose word I praise,

In God I put my trust and have no fear,

What power has human strength over me?" (Psalm 56: 3-4)


"This I know, that God is on my side.

In God whose word I praise,

In God I put my trust and have no fear;

What can mortal man do to me?" (Psalm 56: 10-11)

The Lord hears the cry of the poor

"The Lord hears the cry of the poor…..

The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them.

Taste and see how good the Lord is; happy the man who takes refuge in him." (Psalm 34: 8-9)

My Guardian Angel is always near me to protect and deliver me. I have tasted and seen how good the Lord is. He is terrific!

Set free for a mission

"But at night the angel of the Lord opened the prison gates and said as he led them out, "Go and take up position in the Temple, and tell the people all about this new life." (Acts 5: 19-20)

Satan imprisons us. God releases us from the imprisonment of Satan. We are released from the slavery of sin in order to take up our position in the house of God and tell the people all about the new life. We are set free for a purpose – mission.

Father, I am your servant. Let your word be done to me.

Hope in our resurrection

"God of mercy, you have filled us with the hope of resurrection by restoring man to his original dignity. May we who relive this mystery each year come to share it in perpetual love ……" (Mass Prayer in Easter Season)

The life, death and resurrection of Christ show that this world is not our home.

The Paschal Mystery of Jesus Christ reconciles man to God and restores him to his original dignity.
