Refugium meum et fortitudo mea (Ps 91:2).

My refuge and fortress.

As fragile human beings we need refuge and fortress. For that reason each of us is looking for such a place around himself. However, the best solution is to find the shelter in the presence of the Most High which means abiding in the shadow of the Almighty. Although it sounds mysterious, we are able to experience such a communion. The point is to believe in God strongly and trust him wholeheartedly. In this way we can enter the communion with God any time. Consequently, no evil can befall us nor affliction come near our home. Since we are certain that his holy angels guard us in all our ways. Their hands bear us up, lest we dash our foot against the stone of danger. As a result, we are able to tread upon the powers of darkness and trample down the devil. Such a strength comes from God only if we cling to him and acknowledge the name of his Son, Jesus Christ. Furthermore, when we call upon his name, he sends us the Holy Spirit who is with us in our distress to deliver and glorify us.
