The Poco a Poco Podcast with the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal

Oct 13, 2021

Week 4 of a series on A 30-Day Personal Retreat with the Litany of Trust, by Sr. Faustina Maria Pia, S.V., available here:


Trust is hard for everybody. The grace to trust—especially for the long haul—is always given to us by the Lord. There’s always human effort in the spiritual life, but it’s all gift; all grace. 


It can feel like we’re never going to be able to trust; that we’re so “bad” at trusting, particularly in the beginning, that we’re just never going to be able to let go, no matter how badly we long to do exactly that. We think to ourselves, “I’m powerless.” But here’s the thing: he is not.


There is someone looking back at us at every moment of the day. And through concrete experiences, sometimes very little ones, he invites us to trust. We’ve got to lean into those little moments of trust.
