Feast of St. Brigid of Ireland
Today's reading finds David living in fear. He's being terrorized by his son, just as the people of Gerasenes were terrorized by the man possessed by Legion. But Christ has no fear. In fact, he directly confronts Legion and expels him out of the man. Christ is more powerful than even the nastiest demons. What "demons" are terrorizing you and have you gripped with fear? Is it worry over a sick child, toilet training, a rebellious teen, or school? Christ is your superhero and can expel those demons if you bring them to Him.
One more thing: Today when you find yourself anxious or afraid, pray the psalm, "Lord, rise up and save me!" Envision standing on that riverbank and laying your fears at the feet of Christ.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, my powerful savior, remove my demons and expel my fear, so that I may embrace your love and share it with my family. St. Bridgid of Ireland, pray for me. Amen.
