Chosen and saved by God's mercy

“Like Isaiah, we too are invited to not remain closed in on ourselves, protecting our faith in an underground bunker to which we flee in difficult moments. Rather, we are called to share the joy of knowing we are chosen and saved by God’s mercy, the joy of being witnesses to the fact that faith gives new direction to our steps, that it makes us free and strong so as to be ready and able for mission.”—Pope Francis

Reflection:
It is easy to retreat inward when we feel our faith is being threatened, what can we do to resist the urge to flee? How can we step out of our comfort zone to answer God's call to share the joy that comes from knowing that "we are chosen and saved by God's mercy"?
