Love begins by taking care of the closest ones - the ones at home.

Thomas Merton’s Prayer


My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going.  I do not see the road ahead of me.  I cannot know where it will end.  Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following Your will does not mean that I am actually doing so.  But I believe that the desire to please You does in fact please You.  And I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire.  And I know that if I do this You will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it.  Therefore, I will trust You always though I may seem to be lost in the shadow of death.  I will not fear, for You are ever with me, and You will never leave me to face my perils alone.


Thomas Merton from Thoughts in Solitude.
