Feast of St. Agnes
Today is the feast of St. Agnes. She has always been popular, although we know little about her. I was struck by the psalm in the Liturgy that is all about trust. I think that we are called to have complete trust in God no matter what happens. We please God by trusting as a child trusts her mother and father. I suppose that some parents do not merit complete trust, but God does. He loves us unconditionally so of course we should trust God absolutely. I suspect that there are times when this is hard to do, but we are still called to trust. I love to say, "Sacred Heart of Jesus, I place my trust in You." I hope I live in complete trust without fear for the future.
