Matthew 16:27 For the Son of Man is to come with his angels in the glory of his Father, and then he will repay everyone for what has been done.
“Beloved, just a little while longer and all the hardship and sorrow will fade in the twinkling of an eye. I have heard the cry of my children, and their constant supplication has pierced my heart. I mean to deliver them from the clutches of the infernal enemy. I mean to restore my kingdom and indeed raise it to a glory never before seen on the earth. There is a weariness in the souls of my faithful. I know well what it means to feel weary in body and spirit. But, my children, cling to hope! Now is the time to set your eyes on the horizon, for as day surely follows night, the brightness of a new dawn is surely coming—it is the Lord who speaks, and I will do it! Be faithful, be hopeful, hold your heads high. Your vindication is at hand!”
O my Jesus, thank you for this word of encouragement! Hearts are heavy. Souls are weary. The weight of sin in the world is straining the backs of those who carry the burden of reparation. Thank you for this hope. In your mercy increase our strength for the final push. Alone we can do nothing but add to the burden of sin, but in you we can do all things. May your holy, adorable will be done in us, O beloved Lord, Blessed Trinity of Love. Amen.
