“...The pure sky, the majestic sun which seemed to descend proudly into the waters as if to refresh itself, the luminous ray reaching out from it even to us, gilding the waves lightly stirred by the evening breeze...”
“In the evening we remained on deck to see and examine at leisure the ravishing spectacle before us. It would take an abler pen than mine to describe it properly, if, indeed, it can be described.”

“Being poor we can only plant; you must water, and to God alone be the glory of the increase.”

all peoples, all children to form a river of grace
to moisten, saturate, drench the hardness of hearts of stone
turning them into hearts of flesh, into the heart of the God of Providence.…
