I shall not count the hours or the ways of your approach, dear Lord;
    you will always be welcome.
The mystery of your action in the world has been revealed to me.
I no longer move except within your infinite bosom.
I lie in the midst of the torrent of your grace,
    flowing unceasingly all around me.
No longer will I seek you in the narrow covers of a book,
    or in some saint’s life, or in some philosophical idea.
Yes, Lord, I want to live as your child,
    honoring your goodness and wisdom
    by embracing every event as your gift of love.
I wish to depend on your bounty, which can never fail.
Through faith in you, everything becomes bread to nourish me,
    soap to cleanse me and fire to purify me.

Jean-Pierre De Caussade, 1675-1751, French Jesuit priest and writer
The HarperCollins Book of Prayers


And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
