Do you struggle with daily fear, uncertainty or anxiety, as the trials of life present themselves in big or subtle ways? Is it difficult to trust that God will really protect you or do u feel lost as to how to find peace and maintain it? Sometimes, we may even wonder whether God can truly calm our fears and settle our unrest. 'Be not afraid, for He is with you always.' We must remember, too, that we are in a battle, a battle being waged specifically for our peace. St Francis de Sales reminds us, "The devil does his utmost to banish peace from one's heart, because he knows that God abides in peace and it is in peace that he accomplishes great things." Do something great for yourself this week to conquer anxiety. Pick up the book, Searching for and Maintaining Peace by Fr. Jacques Philippe.
If you don’t like to read or struggle to find the time, listen instead to this series about the book, following this link:
