The key to face difficult situations is the example of Jesus, we must remain in prayer and continue our journey of faith.by Deacon Juan Carlos | 04/10/2022 | From the Clergy
We are about to end Lent, it is a good time to reflect on some questions: What experience do I have with my resolutions or promises at the beginning of this Lent? Am I succeeding, or have I forgotten my promises? What benefits am I having spiritually and bodily?
Let us remember that prayer, fasting, works of mercy, promises and good resolutions with which we begin Lent should benefit others and oneself. If you are achieving it, thank God, and if you have not achieved it, do not be discouraged. The Lord Jesus knows that we are weak and that we go through moments of weakness, temptations, and darkness in our lives.
Today the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ is narrated, in an intense moment we see Jesus in the Mount of Olives with his disciples going through difficult times because of what is going to happen to him. Perhaps Jesus in his humanity experienced darkness, temptations, weakness, and perhaps through Jesus' mind he wanted to reject what was going to happen to him? “Father, if you want, remove this bitter trial from me; but not my will but yours be done.” He is strengthened through prayer (Lk.22:39- 46).
In our lives we also go through moments of: weakness, darkness, temptations, pain and suffering problems, illnesses, the death of a loved one, infidelity in marriage, when we see the people we love addicted to drugs/alcohol, we cry and suffer for them.
The whole of humanity is also going through moments of darkness and weakness in the face of the pandemic, Russia's current war against Ukraine; violence in other parts of the world.
The key to face difficult situations is the example of Jesus, we must remain in prayer and continue our journey of faith.BACK TO LIST BACK
