Great good can come from tragedy, even when a situation seems hopeless. Saint Frumentius and his brother were the only survivors of a shipwreck, but were discovered and eventually introduced Christianity to the people of Ethiopia. If you have experienced a tragedy in your life, ask God for help in dealing with any feelings of hurt, grief, or anger that you have.
I believe that you sent your Son into the world for us, God. Help me to draw strength from your presence, even when all I feel is despair. (Taken from "Good News Day by Day: Bible Reflections for Teens.")
