Jesus, you have told us many times, in many different ways, to trust in you, to have faith in you. If you had not given us that gift of faith, we would be wandering on the earth, looking for you without knowing what we are looking for. We would have been empty people, ghostly people. We treasure that gift despite all of our fickleness and all of our weakness . . . And though we have failed in so many ways, so many times, we trust in your love and forgiveness; we trust that you will renew our faith and let us be yours in every way, now and forever.
