Jan 14 – Homily – Fr Louis Maximilian: Trust During Misfortune
Homily #140114n ( 13min) Play - Fr. Louis Maximilian explains how today's 1st reading shows that when we suffer misfortune, we shouldn't loose our peace, but confidently trust the Lord and be docile to His will for us, for then we will experience His blessing, whether in this life or the next. Finally, he encourages us not to mingle human respect with our piety, neither trying to hide it nor making a show out of it, but always seeking to please God alone. Let us turn to Our Lady who was always open to the work of God and ask Her to give us Her confidence in God, especially when we suffer seemingly without reason.
