THURSDAY, June 4 John XXIII
Luke 12:6-7 Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten in God’s sight. But even the hairs of your head are all counted. Do not be afraid; you are of more value than many sparrows.
From the Archives: May 23, 1946
Some shadows are welcome and pleasant.
Other shadows are anything but. When travelers struggle through the forest jungle, they sense possible danger lurking in every dark shadow.
So in our spiritual pilgrimage our way often seems beset by fear. Fear of what? Well, we don’t know—and that makes it all the more fearsome. If we know the danger or difficulty that we have to face, we can sum up our courage and face it bravely. But sometimes the unknown future inspires us with fear—just because it is unknown.
Our Christian faith is the great fear killer. “Why are you anxious? Why are you so fearful?” asks Jesus. “Be not afraid.”
MOVING FORWARD: What is something that makes you anxious or fearful? Remind yourself that God has already conquered it.
