For the Worriers…

I am one, and I’d bet most of our readers are right there with me.  Hope this inspires ~

“Let God tend to the hopeless-looking things. …It seems to me quite entrancing to be able to pile into bed realizing there is someone as big as God to do all the worrying that has to be done. Worry, you know, is a kind of reverence given to a situation because of its magnitude; how small it must be through God’s eyes…You can’t get everything done in a day, nor can you get any part of it done as well as it could be, or even as well as you’d like it; so, like the rest of us, you putter at your job with a normal amount of energy, for a reasonable length of time, and go to bed with the humilating yet exhilarating knowlege that you are only a child of God and not God Himself.” -Fr. Walter Farrell, O.P.

    Bless you – this is a wonderful quote for a fellow worrier! Reading this is my “try my best and leave the rest to God” moment for the week. I seem to need those reminders constantly…
