(St. Andre Bessette)
God is love, and whoever remains in love remains in God and God in him. . . . There is no fear in love, but perfect love drives out fear because fear has to do with punishment, and so one who fears is not yet perfect in love. 1_Jn_4:11-18
God = Love = Fearless
When the disciples saw Jesus walking on the sea, they thought it was a ghost and cried out (in fear). . . . But at once he spoke with them, “Take courage, it is I, do not be afraid!” He got into the boat with them and the wind died down. Mk_6:45-52
Do not be afraid, beloved. God is with us. Take courage. Remember Jesus is always here to calm down the wind, to eliminate the fear. Love Him. And love one another. And there will be nothing left to fear!
