Quote/s of the Day – 14 April – Saturday of the Second Week of Eastertide
“Speaking of Divine Providence”
“To escape the distress caused by regret
for the past
or fear about the future,
this is the rule to follow:
leave the past to the infinite mercy of God,
the future to His good Providence,
give the present wholly to His love
by being faithful to His grace.”
“But,” say you, “what will become of me if . . . ?”
This is indeed a temptation of the enemy.
Why should you be so ingenious
in tormenting yourself beforehand
about something which perhaps will never happen?
Sufficient for the day is the evil thereof.
Uneasy forebodings do us much harm;
why do you so readily give way to them?
We make our own troubles
and what do we gain by it?
but lose, instead, so much both for time and eternity.“
“never lose sight of the great and consoling truth
that nothing happens in this world
but by the command of God,
or at least, with His divine permission;
and that, whatever He wills, or permits
turns infallibly to the advantage
of those, who are submissive and resigned.”
