An interior source of strength comes from our faith.It factors into all of our decisions and can provide a source of energy and strength during difficult times in life. It may appear that God seems distant or remote, but that is when the support of clear thinking and good counseling help is essential.

God's Pattern

God rewards our perseverance.

 He calls us to the race.

 He equips us to do it well,

 and then He rewards us for doing it.
(taken from The Quilt of Life)

You have to believe that the best will happen.

Prayer of St. Francis

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
where there is sadness, joy;

O Divine Master,
grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled
 as to console;
to be understood as to understand;
to be loved as to love.

For it is in giving that we receive;
it is in pardoning that we are pardoned;
and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
