I will close their wounds and give them health … and I will reveal to them the prayer of peace.  – Jer 33:6

Reflection.  Just as God creates out of nothing, He wondrously refines you as pure gold in the “fire,” and makes you a Saint-in-Training.  A Saint suffers some trials and tribulations, but in the process manifests God’s love for all to see.  Be patient.  Wonderful things are in store for you.

Prayer.  O Lord, I pray for an increase in the virtue of hope so I may cheer up!
