Life can be hard as a rock and often tragic. We live in a world where evil is not only possible but happening all over. But what we often discover is that it is in those hard and tragic times that true believers in God are born. When Peter realizes he is about to be swallowed by the waves, he cried out for help. And there was Jesus taking him by the hand. Great faith grows out of doubt and despair. This story is repeated over and over again in the Bible. It is during the hardest times that faith reaches the greatest heights.Jesus greatest challenges, to take care of the poor and to feed the hungry? This is what we signed up for. We do have to become more involved.
