Grant your people constancy in faith and hope that we may never doubt the promises we have learned from you.

The example of Paul’s faith and hope was that, after having been stoned so that he was thought to be dead, he was able to travel with Barnabas the next day to preach in Derbe! And then to travel back to Antioch to put ‘fresh heart into the disciples’ and to encourage them to persevere in the faith.

Paul did not doubt that what Jesus promised would be fulfilled. Would that we were so constant in our faith and hope!

Jesus handed down to us his own peace. Jesus tells us: ‘Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.’ Paul encourages the disciples: ‘We all have to experience many hardships before we enter the kingdom of God.’

Let us trust in God, not that we will not be sent hardships, but that we will endure in faith and hope when we experience these hardships.
