“Lord, help me to make time today to serve you in those who are most in need of encouragement or assistance.”

“Fear of the Lord does not mean to be afraid of God. St. John tells us that where there is love, there is no fear. Rather, fear of the Lord is to stand in awe and wonder before the greatness of the Lord. It is to recognize that God is the creator and we are the creatures. Fear of the Lord should lead us to praise and worship.”

— Rev. Jude Winkler, OFM
