The end is near! Covid 19 is its sign! The Day of the Lord is upon us! No wonder we fear! Yes,fear stalks the land, but Jesus still proclaims his most frequent one-liner: “Do not fear!” Our God surpasses viruses, wars, poverty and all our fears. Surely, we must employ all measures to avoid the virus and solve our problems. However, after that, Jesus calls us to trust our Father whose spiritual love for us “blows our fears out of the water.” Besides, Jesus proclaims in today’s gospel, “No one knows the day nor the hour.” Our role is to watch for every opportunity to replicate his love , and there’s no better time to begin than today, our church new year. May we make this year our most Christly year by shedding our fears and trusting in the Lord.
