Weekly Devotion – September 17thWeekly Devotions
Jesus assures the disciples that they will be protected in time of adversity, and that He would provide for their needs. This did not mean that the followers of Jesus would be spared difficult trials. On the contrary, those who follow Him are guaranteed that they will have to carry the cross. We have crosses to bear, and our lives are sometimes made difficult because of our religious convictions. It is precisely when the road becomes difficult that we know more clearly that the Lord is at our side, always there to give us strength.
We pray together: Lord, may we be grateful for our lot, and may St. Jude intercede for all those who are suffering every kind of distress or difficult time.
