I am sitting here on a Monday morning, going throug my calendar for the day and week.   An old friend is  speaking, that fear within me, at the busy-ness and the responsibilities and the news that I will announce later.  

That old voice speaks of fear of failure…what if…..????  What if i  fail in preaching, in getting things accomplished…what if the other priests respond negatively?????


The Salvation is God’s love.  Yes, I may fail at tasks, but I am still loved.  My response to this love is to do what I can; to stop worrying about what I cannot control, the people I cannot control.  My response is to do the good that I can. 

A simple message, God’s love is.  Yet, I am finding more and more strength and freedom within it.
