2 Maccabees 3:28-30 The man who a moment before had entered that treasury with a great retinue and his whole bodyguard was carried away helpless, having clearly experienced the sovereign power of God. While he lay speechless and deprived of all hope of aid, due to an act of God’s power, the Jews praised the Lord who had marvelously glorified his holy Place; and the temple, charged so shortly before with fear and commotion, was filled with joy and gladness, now that the almighty Lord had manifested himself.
“My beloved, you have no need to fear those who seek to undermine the church. Their power is no match for the truth and beauty of the Almighty. Lies dissolve before Truth just as darkness fades before light; darkness cannot sustain itself. My child, pray and work for Truth. All those who are on the side of Truth have access to its power.”
Lord show me what I must do and give me the strength to be faithful. Have mercy on my weakness, but let your strength and glory shine in me. Amen.
