Prayer: Janet Erskine Stuart

These things that come home to us and hurt our self-love and humble us in the dust, these are some of God's best graces, full of promise, and never thing that you are at the end of them. There will come more revelations ever more humbling, ever more intimate, and ever more true. But never let them cast you down. Remember that they are birthdays, the putting away of the things of a child. And your vocation, beaten by storms, will come out all the truer.
