  1. I do have difficulty sometimes with longer posts, but wow, this is succinct and powerful!!! “Let nothing disturb thee, nothing affright thee…” Reminds me too of St Francis de Sales, so it must be a universal principle of the Faith. Thanks for the great concept to begin the week (well, on Monday anyway)…
