“In the world you will face many troubles, but I have conquered the world.”
Sweet Jesus, in times of persecution it can be so hard to keep our hearts filled with the joy of your victory over sin, death, and all of the evil powers of the world. Adonai, pour out all of the graces and consolations into all of the hearts that are so struggling this day. May your Easter Joy fill them with all Hope as they place their trust in you. Amen.
In 2020, pledge to pray weekly for Christians who share your faith but not your freedom.
