“And I saw that truly nothing happens by accident or luck, but everything by God’s wise providence . . . for matters that have been in God’s foreseeing wisdom since before time began befall us suddenly, all unawares; and so in our blindness and ignorance we say that this is accident or luck, but to our Lord God it is not so.”
— St. Juliana of Norwich

  MEDITATION OF THE DAY

“Many of the saints tell us that these times of God-ordained ‘desolation’ or dryness are very important times of growth if we persevere through them by exercising a deeper faith, hope, and love. It is particularly important, they tell us, not to give up our spiritual practices but to remain faithful. God in His wisdom knows how long and how deeply we must be tried in order to come closer to Him, and we should patiently trust Him during the trial while persevering in our practices.”
— Ralph Martin
