In this time of worry, we hear the comforting words of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in one of the Gospels provided for today’s celebration of All Souls’ Day (John 6:37-40):
Everything that the Father gives me
will come to me,
and I will not reject
anyone who comes to me,
because I came down from heaven
not to do my own will
but the will of the one who sent me.
And this is the will
of the one who sent me,
that I should not lose anything
of what he gave me,
but that I should raise it on the last day.
We must keep trying the best we can, using all of the prudence and resources God has given us, but we must also have faith and trust, that - no matter what - we will always remain in the tender and loving hands of God.
