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.”

Quote of the day

September 19
“...our gaze wandered over a multitude of wonders, especially when from the summit of mountains which seemed to rest beneath our feet we saw steep gorges, beautiful valleys spread out between superb mountains, all in fact which nature could offer most apt to lift up the soul to the Author of all things.”
– Saint Mother Theodore Guerin
