Whoever is true to life, however hard and barren it may be will discover in himself fountains of very real refreshment. The world will give him more than he ever imagined possible. The silver threads of God’s mystery will begin to sparkle visibly in everything around him and there will be a song in his heart. His burdens will turn to blessings because he recognizes them as coming from God and welcomes them as such … Let us trust in life because we do not have to live through it alone. God is with us.
Alfred Delp, SJ
