Let the Storm Come..........August 3



"Be firm in your resolutions;
stay in the ship in which I placed you
and let the storm come.
Long live Jesus.
You will not perish.
Walk the way of the Lord in simplicity;
do not tormet your spirit.
Say the truth,
always the truth."

Saint Padre Pio of Pietrelcina

Translation:
(At the top:)The Master's Boat(At the bottom:)"My daughter, speak thus in every situation: "Lord, so be it, if it is Thy will. Lord, I am in Thy Hand. Turn me to and fro, in every direction, as Thou pleaseth."[Based on words in "The Imitation of Christ," Section III, Chapter XV.]

Friends,
I believe that the French words have the following meaning:

(At the top:)
The Master's Boat

(At the bottom:)
"My daughter, speak thus in every situation: "Lord, so be it, if it is Thy will. Lord, I am in Thy Hand. Turn me to and fro, in every direction, as Thou pleaseth."
[Based on words in "The Imitation of Christ," Section III, Chapter XV.]

Thankyou, Micki, for the beautiful holy card and the words of St. Pio. Thankyou, John, for the translation--the words are powerful, asking that we totally follow the holy Will of God always and yes, sometimes that is most difficult and yet the best and only way!

I love AF's saying so I'll use it again.

All - "good morning and good blessings"....makes me feel happy just saying those words.
