#HolyWeek: Let Nothing Disturb You…

As we prepare for Good Friday and Easter Sunday maybe a few fears lurking about in the corners of our hearts continue to erode our inner peace. (There are way too many scary things in our whacked out world today to send our hybee gybees grooves into overfright!)

But, that’s the thing about Easter. Good Friday takes all the darkness out of dark so that the Light of Christ may shine away the fears in our hearts.

“In You, O Lord, I take refuge…You are my rock of refuge, my rock & my fortress…” (Psalm 71:1-4)Β  If God is (truly) our Rock of Refuge, we can say (& believe) the words of one of my most favorite saints:

“Let nothing disturb you.

Let nothing affright you.

All things are passing.

God alone remains.”

Saint Teresa of Avila

grace, peace & (undisturbed) faith

      It’s a long-time fav, Debbie — I have printed versions stashed in everyday places as a reminder to not freak out (so much.) Blessings! πŸ™‚

    Jesus, in the Gospel of John, said that he had overcome the world. He said that shortly before his apprehension, torture, and death.
