This month we are invited to Counsel the Doubtful. There are two types of doubt: those which arise from a lack of knowledge, and those which arise from a lack of faith or hope. With this Spiritual Work of Mercy, we are invited to help others come to know and follow Jesus Christ who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. It is Him who gives us hope. And it is He that we must come to know, as well as His teachings, as we strive to be faithful disciples, and help others to do the same – that the promise given to us of eternal life with Him may be ours.
