As we ponder the feelings of anger, despair or hopelessness, doubt, and fear or insecurity, we begin to realize that, in their own right, they do have positive usefulness for how we negotiate life.
It’s when these feeling are allowed to control and dominate us that they become destructive.
This is as true for us today as it was for the disciples in Jesus’ time. And, like the disciples, we have a secret weapon to help us from being overwhelmed by these feelings: the grace of the Holy Spirit.
Father Mark talks about the benefits of opening ourselves to that grace, allowing the work of peace and love to be done in and through us. Listen to this week’s homily in its entirety!
