Psalm 18:4, 19-20 Praised be the LORD, I exclaim! I have been delivered from my enemies. […] They attacked me on a day of distress, but the LORD came to my support. He set me free in the open; he rescued me because he loves me.
“Beloved, do not fear, though the earth should rock and mountains be hurled into the sea. Do not fear that which can destroy the body, but rather fear that which can hurl your soul into hell, namely sin. I have not promised ease and comfort to my faithful ones in this life–only in the next. Keep your mind fixed on things that are above. Let your focus in these days be on the salvation of your soul and those entrusted to your care. Many will die suddenly, without time to prepare. Let your prayers cause them to cry out to me in their final moment. Let your trust in the Divine Mercy be a blanket that covers the world and tempers the just wrath of the Almighty. Do not cease to pray, and in all things—all things—say, ‘Jesus I trust in you!'”
Jesus, I trust in you! Do not let our faith fail—let us not be a cause of shame for you. Keep our feet on the rock and never let us falter. We trust in your mercy for all those you have given us to pray for. Enlarge our territory in the Divine Will for the sake of the souls you love so much. Here we are, Lord—we come to do your will. Save souls! Amen.
