This quotation from Madeleine L'Engle from my 2006 prayer Journal is so true.
It is in the difficult times of our lives that it is so easy to turn away from or blame God
for what happened to us.
Remember God is always with us.
Blessings and love, Fr. Jack.
"It is when things go wrong,
when the good things do not happen,
when our prayers seem to have been lost,
that God is most present.
We do not need the sheltering wings when things go smoothly.
We are closest to God in the darkness, stumbling along blindly."
(Madeleine L’Engle, 1918 to 2007, fiction writer, Episcopalian)
