Do not live in fear, live in freedom

Live and order your lives in your dreams, in that which God desires of you! Often we live in fear; therefore, we place ourselves in our little worlds so fear does not strike us with horror.

This morning, I think of the people of France. They have been struck with the terror of fear. This is not a war of religions or states. Rather, it is a small group, looking to strike fear into us that makes us run away. This is what shakes us up because it deals with those things inside of us: emotions. Yet, we know that the Cross remains the place where God faced death, faced the terror of fear and conquered it.

While we have military force to battle this small group of people, we turn to the King who tramples fear. We pray for the people of France, for healing, and consolation during this time.

Do not live in fear, but orient your lives toward a radical conversion to Christ where true freedom breathes. May the one who crushed the head of the serpent, the fearless Immaculata, be with you people of France.
