This is the whole interior life. Leaving everything –
I found Everything.
From time to time, it is well to say to ourselves:
One day I shall be happy. One day all my trials shall be ended. One day I shall meet my own again. Now, “anguish of spiritfull is often mine,” now “my path is strewn with thorns, not roses,” alas! I am perhaps misunderstood and made to suffer, but soon my boat shall touch the shores of eternity,and I shall receive a welcome from Him Who has loved me
eternally. No one hath hope in the Lord and been confounded.
~ Rev. Henry Brinkmeyer: Conferences of a Retreat –1854-1930 with Nihil Obstat
