I’ve always felt the compassionate presense of eternal love.
When storms rage,
When persecutions threaten,
I quietly creep into its deep abyss.
And securely sheltered there,
My soul is in peace.
Though my body is tossed upon the stormy waves of a cold and selfish world.
If our intention is pure, and we have charity in our hearts,
We need never fear.
Blessed Mary MacKillop (1842-1909)
