Very Timely Scripture From Today's First Reading

Today's first reading was from the beginning of the Letter of James, which reads, in part:
Consider it all joy, my brothers and sisters,
when you encounter various trials,
for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
It never ceases to amaze me how timely the cycle of readings often is, especially given the fact that the readings are chosen ahead of time and current events are not!

Keep the faith, everyone!

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
