(Joel 4:12)

“The Lord is a refuge to his people, a stronghold to his children. . . .”

Reflection:
Refuge—a safe place . . . everyone needs a refuge from time to time, be it a person or a place.

Prayer:
Lord God, how often you have said, “Come to me. . . .” and how often we have not. Help us to believe and we trust that throughout all the ages, you have been our home.
