There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love. We love him, because he first loved us.—1 John 4:18-19
No matter what is occurring in the world, we can be assured that faith, hope, and charity will cast out all fear, despair, and pride that threatens to ruin our peace. Those divine qualities will kindle our souls with a light that is unquenchable by any earthly power. And in return for such a gift, we will desire nothing but to share it. —Leah Welker
