A reflection from St. Therese:
The time may be delayed,
The manner may be unexpected,
But the answer is sure to come.
Not a tear of sacred sorrow,
Not a breath of holy desire,
Poured out to God will ever be lost,
But in God's own time and way
Will be wafted back again in clouds of mercy,
And fall in showers of blessings on you,
And for those for whom you pray.
