Jesus is asking us to have an act of Faith and Trust so that His graces can flow to us and the world. There is the mystery of God who is ever present and acting to lead everything accordingly to His plans and to make all things work to the good of those who love Him.
- Only in faith can we catch glimpses of the mysterious actions of God leading His plans through human history.
- God makes all things work to the good for those who love Him.
- God’s greatness can even use Satan’s attacks to turn against Satan.
- The Coronavirus, a spiritual attack from Satan, works to frighten us and detach us from God.
- Closing of Masses is a sign of a certain death in the Church and a sign to follow the path Jesus, of His suffering, death and being placed in a tomb.
- Now is the time to discover our spiritual faith filled participation in the Mass. The most important participation of the Mass is not just our physical presence.
- God thirst for our response of faith and trust which permits Him to pour out His grace and mercy into our hearts.
Father John Mary’s comments on this being a very unusual situation that we’re living with the Coronavirus problem and without any public Masses. He explains that a lot of people are understandably disturbed by the situation and are wondering what should be done, and how this should be handled.
Father explains that there’s a deeper mystery. Beyond all the human events, there’s the mystery of God, who is always present and acting, and leading His plans through human history. It’s only in faith that we can perceive the mysterious action of God leading everything according to His plans. As Saint Paul said to the Romans, God makes all things work to the good for those who love Him. This Coronavirus is not just a physical attack, but also behind it is a spiritual attack. So, it needs a supernatural response. And that’s why we have to look at God’s plans with faith.
Satan wants to cause fear and separate us from the Mass so that we dry up. But on the contrary, if we make an act of faith in Jesus with the help of our Blessed Mother, by that fact, an act of faith and trust, then these graces can flow with a new abundance. Jesus, we trust in you.
