Woman at the Well

I don’t even want to recount
what has happened

I just want to be with the One
who already knows.
who knows me through and through
better than I know myself.

Quote

“Just trust God. God will provide. Even tomorrow what will happen we don’t know. Believe there is God. God doesn’t always give happy feelings. But in the end we are looking to eternal life. Cooperate and trust and believe. Trust the community and trust God and trust yourself and go day by day and it will take you to the end. You are thinking too much. We don’t know what the future will be.”

Prayer for guidance

At times when the way ahead,
or even the next step,

that You envision
a plan to prosper me and not to harm me,
to give me a future full of hope.

Quote of the day

October 31
All Hallow's Eve
“A long time after the sun had disappeared the moon succeeded it, and it knew a more somber clarity; we were still there to admire the Works of Creation and to make the most serious reflections on what we beheld and on our present position.”
– Saint Mother Theodore Guerin
