Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?
Recordare, Iesu pie, Quod sum causa tuae viae: Ne me perdas illa die...

Our plans are unsure, but there is a path

For the deliberations of mortals are timid,
and unsure are our plans.

For the corruptible body burdens the soul
and the earthen shelter
weighs down the mind that has many concerns.

And scarce do we guess the things on earth,
and what is within our grasp
we find with difficulty;
but when things are in heaven,
who can search them out?

Or who ever knew Your counsel,
except You had given Wisdom
and sent Your Holy Spirit from on high?

And thus were the paths of those on earth
made straight.

(from today's first reading - Wisdom 9:13-18b)
