Do Not Let Your Hearts Be Troubled – Family Reflection Video

Lately, I’ve been seeing an ad on TV that ends with the phrase: “He gets us.” The He is Jesus. Today’s gospel is proof that Jesus “gets” us, for it begins: “Do not let your hearts be troubled …” Jesus knows that more often than we’d like to admit or sometimes even think about … our hearts are troubled.

Don't Wait - Family Reflection Video
