If you ever feel down or lost, please remember this truth: When Jesus as High Priest prayed for his new Church in John 17, please remember He prayed specifically for you.
Steve Ray from “The Birth of the Catholic Church”.
“I do not pray for these only but for those who will believe in me through your work.” In other words, that day that Jesus prayed at the Temple, he prayed specifically for you. He said, “I’m not just praying for your disciples, but I’m praying for all those who believe in your word and the word that you teach. I’m praying right now for everyone of them. He knew your name back 2,000 years ago and prayed for you in front of the Jewish Temple on his way to the Cross.” Always have hope.
