From The Pastor

Recently, while surfing the internet I came upon a wonderful prayer by Saint John Henry Newman. I thought the prayer very moving and appropriate in times of worry and upheaval. There is no storm in life, in your life or mine, that does not show the presence of God. He is in charge and all will be well. We are called to trust. As Jesus asked his disciples so he asks us; “Do you not yet have faith?” As St. Newman wrote:

“God has created me to do Him some definite service. He has committed some work to me which He has not committed to another. I have my mission. I may never know it in this life, but I shall be told it in the next. I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons. He has not created me for naught. I shall do good; I shall do His work. I shall be an angel of peace, a preacher of truth in my own place, while not intending it if I do but keep His commandments. Therefore, I will trust Him, whatever I am, I can never be thrown away. If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve Him, in perplexity, my perplexity may serve Him. If I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve Him. He does nothing in vain. He knows what He is about. He may take away my friends. He may throw me among strangers. He may make me feel desolate, make my spirits sink, hide my future from me. Still, He knows what He is about.”
