“I lift up my eyes towards the mountains;
whence shall help come to me?
My help is from the Lord who made
heaven and earth.”
(Psalm 12:1-2)

Looking back on the past year and all its challenges, Canadian author Phil Callaway writes: “I can’t understand what’s going on, but God can. I can’t see it from here, but Heaven’s throne is occupied. And all is well. We who have faith in Jesus believe that better days lie ahead. That no one can frustrate the plans of God. That nothing can separate us from God’s love. That nothing can happen to us this year that God cannot redeem.”

Psalm 33:20-22 says this: “Our soul waits for the Lord, who is our help and our shield. In the Lord our hearts rejoice; in the Lord’s holy name we trust. May your kindness, O Lord be upon us who have put our hope in you.”

Fr. Max Oliva, S.J.
