“Be not afraid” — words of the Angel Gabriel to Mary at the Annunciation. “Be not afraid” — words spoken to the women at the tomb after the Resurrection. Words spoken to the disciples when Risen Jesus appeared to them in the upper room. “Be not afraid” — words spoken to each of us as we endure the trials and joys of every day life.

God has chosen us to exist. So why fear? Out of billions of possibilities he chose each one of us to live. He has a providence for each of us. There is no greater grace he affords us than the help to ward off disappointment and disillusionment.

So when fear approaches and temptations lead us to despair, rather we shall say to the devil – “Back off, the Lord is with me.” Christ is our King. He commands us to fear not. We follow his regal example and help others out of fear as well. And we should sing the song we learned as young people: “Be not afraid, I go before you always. Come follow me, and I will give you rest.”

Rev. M. Joseph Casey, S.J, Associate Pastor
