There are Christians whose lives seem
like Lent without Easter
~ Pope Francis, Evangelii Gaudium 6 ~
Hard times may come, when the cross casts its shadow, yet nothing can destroy the supernatural joy that “adapts and changes, but always endures, even as a flicker of light born of our personal certainty that, when everything is said and done, we are infinitely loved”. That joy brings deep security, serene hope and a spiritual fulfilment that the world cannot understand or appreciate.
Gaudete et Exsultate, 125
I have forgotten what happiness is…
Help me to remember
your love for me
For you are faithful…
Help me to wait
quietly for you Lord.
