Waiting for God

If God at times seems to be slow in responding, it is because He is preparing a better gift.  He will not deny us.  We well know that the long-awaited gift is all the more precious for the delay in its being granted… Ask, seek, insist.  Through this asking and seeking you will be better prepared to receive God’s gift when it comes.  God withholds what you are not yet ready for.  He wants you to have a lively desire for His greatest gifts.  All of which is to say, pray always and do not lose heart.  (St. Augustine, Catena Aurea)

Where to Look

Our Mother Mary will teach us how to live entirely for God’s glory.  Don’t ever lose the supernatural point of view.  Correct your intention as the course of a ship is corrected on the high seas – by looking at the star, by looking at Mary.  Then you will always be sure of reaching harbor. --- ICWG, Fr Fernandez and The Forge, St Josemaria Escriva
