Quote of the day, 15 July: St. Elizabeth of the Trinity

You can guess how much I am praying for our dear Marie-Louise during the great novena in preparation for Our Lady of Mount Carmel.

Besides, I have been discussing Marie-Louise’s concerns [about marriage] with the Blessed Virgin [for] a long time now, and you know that we never invoke her in vain; but God’s thoughts are deep and are not our thoughts [Cf. Is 55:8]; may we know how to wait for His hour and may our faith grow, if this were possible, to the height of His love.

He is Father, and even if a mother would forget her child, He would never abandon us [Cf. Is 49:15].
