In the world you shall have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world” (John 16.33) is the reassurance of the Lord, who alone trampled upon death by death, to generations of men and women
Beloved brothers and children in the Lord,
With the grace and loving kindness of God, tomorrow we enter the arena of Holy and Great Lent, the most suitable period for the soul—our own soul—to turn toward the Lord.
This joyous message was heard from heaven to earth during the holy Christmas night. And this same message has a timeless power and value. It gives great joy "to all people" of every era, now and always even unto the end of time.
