September 30, 2015 – Israel’s Desert Experience Emphasizes God’s Presence

In a world today that widely lacks confidence in the truth, according to St. John Paul II, we have the story about ancient Israel in the desert. They complained about the manna God was providing, and lamented the “good” they had received in Egypt. In this story from the distant past we find a particularly proximate insight into our own life’s challenges. It is an opportunity to remember Who we are following, to trust that he is still with us, and to ask for the grace to grow in confidence and faith as we face our own crosses.
