Jesus invites us to trust in God and in him. To believe means to trust, first of all—to surrender, to abandon ourselves to love. In the face of fear, the antidote par excellence is trust in God.
Faced with the tragedy of his crucifixion, Jesus asks us to do the same today as asked his disciples then. He wants us to persevere each day, united to him and the Father, with the awareness that we are loved and cared for with a love so profound, it surpasses understanding.
We won’t always be able to comprehend the bad things that happen to us, but we always will be able to trust in the love of God who cares for us, consoles and sustains us.
