Thought for the Month

Prayer of Saint Francis De Sales

Do not look forward
to the changes and chances
of this life in fear;
rather, look to them
with full hope that,
as they arise,
whose you are,
will deliver you
out of them.

He has kept you until now -
do you but hold fast
to His dear hand
and He will lead you
safely through all things;
and when you cannot stand,
He will bear you
in His arms.

Do not look forward
to what may happen tomorrow;
the same everlasting Father
who cares for you today
will take care of you
tomorrow and every day.

Either He will shield you
from suffering
or He will give you
unfailing strength
to bear it.

Be at peace,
and put aside
all anxious thoughts
and imaginations.
