Our Lord tells us to take courage...

In today's Gospel: Jn 16:29-33 we read:

The disciples said to Jesus,
“Now you are talking plainly, and not in any figure of speech.
Now we realize that you know everything
and that you do not need to have anyone question you.
Because of this we believe that you came from God.”
Jesus answered them, “Do you believe now?
Behold, the hour is coming and has arrived
when each of you will be scattered to his own home
and you will leave me alone.
But I am not alone, because the Father is with me.
I have told you this so that you might have peace in me.
In the world you will have trouble,
but take courage, I have conquered the world.”

What wonderful words to ponder today...we WILL have trouble in this world but we should TAKE COURAGE and we can have PEACE because our dear Lord has CONQUERED THE WORLD!
