Today we celebrate Our Lady of Peace and Saint Francis de Sales, and Cassandra reflects on finding peace wherever we are on the infertility path.
Our Lady of Peace, pray to God for us! Saint Francis de Sales, pray to God for us!
“Be at peace.
Do not look forward in fear to the changes of life;
rather look to them with full hope as they arise.
God, whose very own you are, will deliver you from out of them.
He has kept you hitherto, and He will lead you safely through all things;
and when you cannot stand it, God will bury you in his arms.
Do not fear what may happen tomorrow;
the same everlasting Father who cares for you today
will take care of you then and every day.
He will either shield you from suffering, or give you unfailing strength to bear it.
Be at peace, and put aside all anxious thoughts and imagination.”
~Prayer of St. Francis de Sales
