Courageous Fragility

9789996599002_web“When the Lord looks at our fragility, he invites us to take care of it not with fear but with courage.

“Don’t be afraid, I have overcome the world!” (Jn 16:33) “I am with you always until the end of the world.” (Mt 28:20)

Therefore, the awareness of one’s own fragility and its acknowledgement, will not make the Lord withdraw from us, but, on the contrary, will move him as in the case of Peter to send us on a mission, to urge us to set out ino the deep water and become fishers of people.”
