Daily Prayer for Lent

February 25, 2021

 

Jesus knows how difficult it is to follow His teachings. He knows that we will meet with opposition, disdain, harassment, persecution, and even martyrdom. So, He recognizes that we will all face the temptation to fall away.

In the midst of this pandemic, I’ve worried that the trauma of the coronavirus would tempt people to lose their faith, but I’m happy to see that the opposite is the case. Recent evidence shows that people’s faith has been strengthened.

A crisis can do that, right? It can strengthen our faith or weaken it.

Jesus warns us that we should be on guard not to let our faith weaken in times of adversity. The tougher things get, the more our faith is needed. 
 
—Excerpted from I Am with You by Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan
