Rise, And Do Not Be Afraid!


Catholic speaker and author Gary Zimak offers advice for overcoming fear and anxiety

Today we celebrate the feast of the Transfiguration. The gospel from today’s Mass contains a powerful message for any of us who may be tempted to give into our fears and begin worrying. Peter, James and John had just witnessed a glimpse of Heaven. It was now time for them to get up, descend from the mountain and deal with some very difficult problems. As can be expected, they didn’t want to leave. That’s the challenge that we face every day, my friends. It’s important that we make time to speak to Jesus throughout the day, but it’s also important to remember His words when that time is over and we have to face the difficulties of our daily lives. Relax…He’s right there with you!

But Jesus came and touched them, saying, “Rise, and do not be afraid.” (Matthew 17:17)
