Sixth Sunday of Easter

"Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid." How are we to do this, surrounded as we are by pain and anger? Trust. We are called to trust in our Parent's love, to trust that the Spirit will be with us when we need her, to trust that they will return for us when the time comes. Yes, such trust is a tall order. Yes, we would much prefer a plan to eliminate the sources of our troubles and fear. But our Brother did not leave us with one of those. No, he left us something better: hope. Alleluia! Alleluia!
