“She said, ‘Really? Can you also knock down the stars from the sky?’ “said Giese.

Giese concluded by reading St. Paul’s Letter to the Romans:

“As it is written, ‘For your sake we are being killed all day; we are seen as sheep to be slaughtered. No, in all these things we overwhelmingly overcome through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things future, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature can separate from the love of God in Jesus Christ our Lord.
