Father Thaddaeus explains that life is a continual choice between two paths, trust and distrust, and a Christian cannot remain neutral. To advance on our journey, we need to know our enemy, Satan, but more importantly, we need to know our companion, the Blessed Virgin Mary. She teaches us how to live the prayer "Jesus, I trust in You" in all our difficulties and trials; recognize the temptations of the serpent of distrust, the devil; step on him; and leave him in the dust.
Saying the prayer "Jesus, I trust in You" is easy. Living this prayer, as Mary did, is not. Father Thaddaeus shows us the way.
The prayer, "Jesus, I Trust in You" is a whole program of life in fact, it's a journey. But we rejoice, because Mary has already walked along this journey of trust, and she walks it again with us! Stepping on the Serpent: The Journey of Trust with Mary is a meditation upon the meaning of the short prayer, "Jesus, I Trust in You." Stemming from years of personal prayer and lived experience, Fr. Thaddaeus Lancton hopes to encourage the reader to take the next step in their own journey with the Lord.
