The Lord invites us to believe in Him unwaveringly, and encourages us to always be aware of His loving presence. God is always with us, reaching out His hand and working to bring us His graces, even if we don’t feel it… after all, He promised so: “And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” (Matthew 28: 20).
