Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?

Dreading Monday

Not everyone is happy about their day-to-day life.

Not everyone is happy about their work.

Not everyone begins the day or begins the week with joyful anticipation.

Sometimes people begin the day or begin a week with fear and dread.

Today’s first reading (Isaiah 35:1-10) has a message for us:

Strengthen the hands that are feeble,
make firm the knees that are weak,
Say to those whose hearts are frightened:
Be strong, fear not!
Here is your God,
he comes with vindication;
With divine recompense
he comes to save you.
