So much is happening today in our world and in our lives. We are being tested and we are being attacked. But God does not leave us orphans. (John 14:18) Instead, he promises us that "I will never leave you or forsake you." (Joshua 1:5) and "I am with you always, until the end of the world" (Matthew 28:20)
God is truly present in the Blessed Sacrament and as close as a prayer. Let us pray with the Psalmist:
I stretch out my arms to you,
I stretch out my soul, like a land without water.
Come quickly and hear me, O Lord,
for my spirit is weakening.
Do not hide your face from me,
do not let me be like the dead,
who go down to the underworld.
Show me your mercy at daybreak,
because of my trust in you.
Tell me the way I should follow,
for I lift up my soul towards you.
Rescue me from my enemies:
Lord, I flee to you for refuge.
Teach me to do your will,
for you are my God.
