Fr. Kevin Stephens, OP calls our attention to the fear and uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 as a reality which brings us to greater solidarity with the fear and anxiety of the past. He helps us to identify with the man who begs Jesus to heal his son, and to save his son from death. That man believed that Jesus could save his son, and Jesus rewarded his faith with the healing he asked for.
This reminds us of the power of God’s providence; that we can believe with equal assurance that God has not forgotten us, and that there is light and peace waiting on the other side of trial. Listen here.
