Word of the Day: Refuge

Sep 24, 2021 | Words of Wisdom

REFUGE – a condition of being safe or sheltered from pursuit, danger, or trouble; something providing shelter

When we seek refuge, we trust that it will take care of and make us feel safe and secure. When we take refuge in God specifically, we offer that trust to Him. His refuge helps us to be at peace.

Scripture: Psalms 46:1

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”


“If you follow the will of God, you know that in spite of all the terrible things that happen to you, you will never lose a final refuge. You know that the foundation of the world is love, so that even when no human being can or will help you, you may go on, trusting in the One that loves you.”

— Pope Benedict XVI
