Reflections from the Saints

My hope is in Christ, who strengthens the weakest by His Divine help. His Power is infinite, and if I lean on him, it will be mine. His Wisdom is infinite, and if I look to Him for counsel, I shall not be deceived. His Goodness is infinite, and if my trust is stayed in Him, I shall not be abandoned.
– Pope St. Pius X
