It is my wish that you be free of all anxieties.  – 1 Cor 7:32

Reflection. We must be convinced of the necessity of having a living, authentic, and active faith.  That is all the more true today, when we face so many difficulties.  It is not enough to have a vague, weak, or uncertain faith.  – Pope John XXIII

Prayer. O Lord, I often feel like the man in the Gospels who asked You to help what little faith he had.  Fill my heart with Your gift of faith; let my faith be active and living.
