“Then Moses summoned Joshua and in the presence of all Israel said to him, ‘Be brave and steadfast, for you must bring this people into the land which the LORD swore to their fathers he would give them; you must put them in possession of their heritage. It is the LORD who marches before you; he will be with you and will never fail you or forsake you. So do not fear or be dismayed.’” (DT 31: 7-8)
Moses shared with Joshua his very close relationship with God and his faith; He encouraged him to lead Israel and to follow God, Who “will be with you and will never fail you or forsake you.” The same way we do with our relatives; when we pray, when we believe, we will naturally share with them our relationship with God. When we pray together with our spouses, our children receive the strongest foundation for their lives.
“Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am meek and humble of heart.” (Gospel Acclamation)
