Do not be afraid; I will help you.

This passage from Isaiah rings with hope, and the sure promise of God’s love. Let us speak these words aloud—‘I, your God, will answer them … I will not abandon them … I will plant cedar, acacias, myrtles and olives … I will open up rivers and waterholes.’

These are the words of a generous, loving father. They seem to be addressed to those who are in great need. How would God look on today’s world where there is so much suffering and disharmony? In the gospel we are reminded how both John the Baptist and Jesus encountered hostility and opposition. The disciples saw it with their own eyes. Jesus said, ‘Anyone who has ears should listen.’ May we have eyes and ears that discern you in those we meet today.
