In my anguish I cried out to the Lord and He heard my voice. – Ps. 18:7

Reflection. Scripture tells us that love is patient. It is so true. The service of love often takes the form of waiting, which can feel like a slow death at times. The earth waits for rain, the bud waits for warmth, and the soul waits for a union with God. Healing is yours for the asking.

Prayer. Dear Jesus, help me to carry my cross with courage.
