Lord, every nation on earth will adore you.--Psalm 72:(see 11)
Mass readings: 1 John 4:11-18 / Mark 6:45-52
Perhaps fear is second only to sin in keeping us from experiencing the love that God has for us. Our fear comes from so many places that it's sometimes hard to unravel the cords of stress and anxiety that seem to strangle our spirits. But today's first reading reveals an awesome reality: perfect love casts out fear. That perfect love comes directly from God through Jesus. The triumph of His cross and Resurrection is our hope to overcome the everyday fears that hold us back.
Claim your victory over fear by listing all of your fears and either literally placing them at Christ's feet upon a crucifix or figuratively during your prayer time or at Mass. We can begin to free ourselves from fear if we keep our eyes on Jesus and trust that His perfect love will set us free.
Prayer: Heavenly Father, infuse me with Your perfect love.
