Fear Not

 
 

There are very serious reasons for all the faithful to be afraid, but we must answer this human fear with a supernatural viewpoint, by listening to Our Lord. 

This fear is nothing new. This fear has been around ever since the Apostles. It is one of the most powerful weapons of the Church’s enemies, especially the devil, for paralyzing the apostolic action of the Church. The devil tries to frighten, to terrify. 

We must conquer this fear, but not by seeking human means. Men are tempted either to let themselves be frightened by the reality before them, or to try to fix the problems themselves. To both, the true answer is the one given by Our Lord when He said “Fear not,” for we must seek help in Him. 

“Our help is in the Name of the Lord." We must look at God. And in a crisis as terrible as this one, it is all that we have left. As far as men are concerned, it is over, it is hopeless. The situation of the Church is a nameless catastrophe. So there really is reason to be frightened. But we do not have the right to let ourselves be paralyzed, we must go forward, we must reconquer, and that can only be done in the Name of the Lord -- looking at God and seeking the help promised by God.

When God asked the apostles to go out into the whole world, He must have said to them “Fear not,” but He also said, “Count on Me. I will always be with you.” That is the true message, it is not just “Fear not.”
