Stop and look into the eyes of the Good Shepherd who truly loves you as the precious apple of His eye. He came to the world to save you, your immortal soul as if you were the only person in the whole created universe! Now is the time to open up your wounded, lonely, sad and depressed heart and to talk to Him! John Paul II insisted at the outset of his inspiring pontificate that the world at large as well as individual hearts should not be afraid to open the door to Christ, in other words to open up their hearts to Jesus, the Good Shepherd of their lives! Peter: Are you fearful of the future and what it holds for you? Do you doubt about the past due to the number and seriousness of your past sins? Never forget that Jesus healed the blind, the lame, the deaf, the paralytics, the lepers; He even brought the dead back to life. Let Jesus be the Doctor of your woundedness and your sicknesses.

How many young people today have recourse to violence toward others and turn on themselves when swimming in an apparently endless sea of desolation?
This state of desolation—manifested through a deep sense of loneliness—is all pervasive in all societies and situations today now more than ever! “Our help is in the name of the Lord who made heaven and earth! Paul reminds us with these encouraging words: “If God is with us who can be against us…” and “When I am weak then I am strong…” (The strength being of course God).
If we do not know how to cope properly with this state of desolation then this state can wreak havoc in our lives and do irreparable damage to our spiritual life and even our natural life.
