From Fr. Frank

Bring God into your troubles and suffering…

In today’s gospel Jesus is praying to the Father knowing that his Passion is about to occur. In the most painful time in his life, Jesus glorifies the Father by accepting the reality of the Cross and he prays that the Father watch over us.
Life is filled with many personal crosses and they come in many shapes and sizes: illness, loneliness, fear, addictions, family problems. Whatever is your cross, when you embrace it, you give God the glory and God will strengthen you. Each cross, when embraced, will lead to a glimmer of new life.
