Jesus surely had moments of discouragement and despair-he was fully human, after all. Perhaps, like Jesus, we can rededicate ourselves to the Good news by recalling and seeking life’s glimmers of divine hope.
Let us pray for the success of the Annual Catholic Appeal in our parish and diocese this year, that the Holy Spirit may move us in faith to unite our prayers with our financial support to do the good works of Christ to feed the hungry, educate the young, visit the sick and imprisoned, welcome the stranger and increase vocations to the priesthood so that the Eucharist may always be celebrated for God’s people.
