Though we might believe that we are serving God faithfully, we might rarely see any results from our acts of charity or self-giving - as if we were flying over a cloudy landscape with only an occasional glimpse of the fields below.

We should trust in God's love from one day to the next. There are people who are not content to walk the safe, narrow way marked out by Jesus Christ for all who would follow Him to Heaven.

Christ showed me the simple way: through faith and trust in Him I am making my way to eternity, like a child who walks on stepping-stones
Just as Christ toddled steadily forwards, held by His Mother, so we can walk like simple trusting children, unafraid and hopeful.
By every honest confession, and every new admission of sin and failure, we remove the veils which hide God's glory.
Whatever our sins or failures, we can turn to Christ and entrust our lives to Him, and He will plead to the Father for us
We ourselves, by God's grace, can pull down the barriers that separate us from Christ. By trust and contrition, we can come closer to Him Who is with us as every Mass in all His Risen glory.
