The Holy Father on Fear and Trust

Pope Benedict XVI's Angelus address yesterday was on fear and trust. Turns out to be quite nicely related to my post yesterday (I heard this on Relevant Radio this morning)...

"Let us welcome Christ's invitation," he said, "to face daily events trusting in his providential love. Let us not be afraid of the future, even when it appears bleak to us, for the God of Jesus Christ, who took up history to open it up to its transcendent fulfillment, is its alpha and omega, the beginning and the end."

"He guarantees that in every little but genuine act of love the meaning of the whole universe is contained, and those who do not hesitate to lose their lives for him, will find them again in fullness."
