Close To Those In Trouble

At the depth of each person there is a mysterious life, not only created by God but also directed by God at each  and every hour. There is an hour of peace and an hour of violence, an hour of birth and an hour of re-birth into eternity. Just as death and immortality are won-drously absorbed in God’s infinite knowledge and loving care, so also is the birth, the inner character and temperament, the sequence of life. These most essential parts of our person, these most crucial moments of our existence are all locked in the secrecy of God’s divine life.
