Jesus responded … “I am not alone because the Father is with Me.”  – Jn 16:31-32

Reflection.  Both statements are true because Jesus was both human and divine.  As humans we, too, know about those dark feelings that sometimes beset us.  And yet there is always hope.  Because of God’s grace we know we are never alone.

Prayer.  Lord, help me not to be afraid.  I know You are always with me.
