NOVENA OF TRUST - Days Seventeen and Eighteen
I apologize to all who have been praying with us! It seems the Novena of Trust did not post correctly yesterday, for some strange reason. Let us double up and get back on track...
Day Seventeen: "That Your loves goes deeper than my sins and failings, and transforms me. Jesus, I trust in you."
Day Eighteen: "That not knowing what tomorrow brings is an invitation to lean on You. Jesus, I trust in you."
As we celebrate in the Church the Feast of All Saints (yesterday) and the Feast of All Souls (today), we can turn to the Saints for the "proof positive" that total trust in God is possible and is rewarded.
The Saints were not perfect people, they were people with faults and failings. People who struggled to understand what God wanted of them and, people who struggled to let God in. They are our models and examples because they struggled, because they persevered.
When we persevere, when we allow God in, His work is beautiful and transformative.
How appropriate is Day Eighteen! Today might find us on edge about Election Day tomorrow, the rise in case numbers of the COVID Virus, and simply the state of the world around us.
A friend of mine used to use this saying:
No God, No peace
Know God, Know peace
There is no better day to tap into the beauty of this Novena and pray with all our hearts, "...not knowing what tomorrow brings is an invitation to lean on You. Jesus, I trust in you."
Holy Saints of God, pray for us.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us.
