I am not alone.

“But I am not alone, because the Father is with me. I have told you this so that you might have peace in me. In the world you will have trouble, but take courage, I have conquered the world.” (JN 16: 32-33)

Our Lord knew what could happen with the Apostles when His “hour” will come. And He knew what could happen when His disciples start their mission. Behind being persecuted, there is one more difficult situation—being totally separated and abandoned by your friends. And this will never happen because we can always count on His presence in our heart like He is “not alone because the Father is with Him.” Remembering this could help us, “so that you may have peace in me.”

“If then you were raised with Christ, seek what is above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.” (Gospel Acclamation)
