"Ahead! Courage! In the spiritual life he who does not advance goes backward. It happens as with a boat which always must go ahead. If it stands still the wind will blow it back." ~Saint Pio of Pietrelcina
The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts;
so I am helped, and my heart exults, and with my son I give thanks to him.
Dear Lord, when I weary of rowing, I will look to You and find strength to stay the course. Amen.
