Joel 4:16 The LORD roars from Zion, and from Jerusalem raises his voice; The heavens and the earth quake, but the LORD is a refuge to his people, a stronghold to the men of Israel.
“Beloved, do not image that I have abandoned my people. I come to make all things new; the old must be torn down so the new may be rebuilt. My beloved ones, do not be afraid, but remain in my joy, for the hour of triumph is near. Many souls longed to see what you will see, and they are praying fervently for you, that your faith may not fail, but that you will be strengthened for the battle that lies ahead. With so many saints and angels praying for you, how can you doubt that the gifts you need will be there when you need them? Do not judge yourselves by the way your are today. You have grace today for today’s needs; tomorrow’s grace will come tomorrow. Trust in me and be at peace, dear children. I am near–as near to you as your own breath.”
Jesus I trust in you. I believe in your providential grace, and trust in your goodness. I offer thanks to the Gloriana* for their prayers and their love. What riches are ours in the communion of heaven! Jesus, my hope, trust, and joy are in you. All praise and thanks to God. Alleluia! Amen.
(*Gloriana: The angels and saints in perfect communion with the Blessed Trinity; the perfect unity of heaven.)
