Fourth Sunday of Easter
In spite of our desire to be independent, one of the most terrifying things about life is its solitude, its loneliness, our need to be with someone or others. Our religion assures us that we are never alone. Jesus was always aware of the presence of his father. The Psalmist reminds us: “Even though I walk in the dark valley, I fear no evil for you are at my side.” St. Paul reminds us God is not far from any of us for it is in him that we live and move and have our being.
