The Strenght Of Faith - 2

                                                                     Antoni BigCuore Casagrande *

 (Sp 27.01.2007, Saturday at 6.31 hrs. (Alt. 21.03.2013, 5th Friday at 14.50 hrs.)Paul says that faith is the substance of things not seen, but for which we hope. Faith moves mountains! Faith is a force that drives us to overcome any difficulties. She is our driving force inside that when we are at rock bottom existential, it raises us, drives us toward greater things, the things of HIGH, to overcome the daily difficulties; urges us also to the strength of joy because it brings with it the great theological virtue of HOPE!. It is our great motivator. A great light when everything seems dark! It is the energy that is lacking when our forces are exhausted, when all seems lost!

In his letter to the Hebrews, chapter 6, verse 4, says: "There are people who were ILLUMINATED once tasted the gift from heaven, participated in the Holy Spirit and experienced the good word of God and the wonders of the future world, yet fell . It is impossible for them to be renewed again and be brought to conversion since they crucified the Son of God again and exposed the injuries. " (1)

In verse 7, we read: "In fact, when a land soaked with rain produces abundant plants useful for those who cultivate this land has the blessing of God. 8But if it bears thorns and thistles, it has no value and is one step away from the curse and end up being burned. "

 Yet in the same letter, in verse 19, we read: "HOPE is as an anchor to our lives. She is safe and firm, is penetrating to the other side of the curtain of the sanctuary, where Jesus has entered as a forerunner for us, having become a high priest forever after the order of Melchizedek priesthood. "(My italics).
Let the other side, Jesus says to his disciples. And when the first difficulties arise, (windstorm) they panic and scream ... Master we perish! Jesus, on the other hand, with its peacefulness of the Son of God, he says. Why are you afraid? Have you still no faith?Says the wind. Calm down!! And the storm dissipated.

Thus, my brothers and sisters, in everyday life when we are faced with the difficulties of this world. We started to suffer in advance, showing much anxiety and insecurity. The storms of fear, hatred, envy, jealousy, everything constitutes real threats to our own happiness. We all seek happiness, only astray.

We do not know HOW fazer.Primeiro step: CALM! Let the dust settle difficulties! Calmly, with faith in our God wonderful and all powerful, he shows us the inspiration, which path we should follow. Note that when we are tense, worried, anxious, it seems that in order to lower a dark cloth sealing everything. We do not see anything!. It's time to ... RELAX!Conversely, when our soul is "mature", truly evolving, she do not panic about anything. Well, you know, in anticipation that the result will be smooth. Simply, bridge the gaps! Circumvent them! It's simple.Faith is our great ANCHOR, the boat of our life!. The Church is the boat and the sea is the world and its temptations and challenges!

My brothers and sisters, when we have God's light in our hearts, when we are in STATE OF GRACE, everything is resolved in the best way possible! EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE TO BELIEVE THAT!! Of course, the state of grace, assumes away from sin! Sin enslaves. LIBERTA LOVE! We entrust therefore the strength that comes from the Holy Spirit, that power that our mind can not fully comprehend, but we know that she never misses the entire Christian faithful.Praise God forever! Amen!
