Magnificat's Wednesday meditation:
"The truth of God's love was shown on the cross of his beloved son, Jesus.Saint Paul of the Cross
And the way to grow in our relationship with God in times of physical or mental stress is to strengthen ourselves by doing the things that God desires.
It is a sign of great holiness when one is resigned in everything to the will of God. Everything that God wills is for our good.
He knows how to console us when we least expect it.
If anyone hurts you, look on him as someone of great value and, with the eyes of one who loves . . .
Even when things are at their worst, keep your peace of heart and accept whatever God sends you as being for your good.
God is your guide, your father, your teacher, your husband.
In everything that happens the best thing you can do is abandon yourself to his will."
