Thought of the week
by Father GhislainNdondji OFM
In difficult times, have you ever had to ask where is God? Have you ever had that feeling that God is far from you, and he would be several thousand miles away? Often we feel that when we are going through a difficult time. Yet, regardless of the situation you are going through, regardless of the battle you are leading now, rest assured of one thing, you are never alone, God is with you. This was also the case of the disciples of Emmaus (cf. Lk. 24, 13-35). Often our sorrows prevent us from seeing God. Maybe you have been struck by misfortune: the loss of a loved one, loss of your job, health problems, a difficult relationship, a breakup. Maybe because of your grief, you have not seen God by your side. Rest assured, he was there and he is always there with you. He whispers in your ear: ‘I love you.’ Even when you do not see it, it is there, present, acting alongside you. Ask him then to reveal himself to you.
URGENT APPEAL FOR PRAYERS – The Pope has invited everyone to raise up with one voice a ceaseless prayer for an end to the dramatic situation of the peoples in the north of Iraq, in particular the plight of the Christian Communities in that region. In the Angelus prayer of July 20, the Pope said, “May the God of Peace create in all an authentic desire for dialogue and reconciliation. Violence is not conquered with violence. Violence is conquered with peace! Let us pray in silence, asking for peace; everyone, in silence… Mary Queen of peace, pray for us!”
