Joy in His Arms

At the shrine of Blessed Nicolas in Samphran, Thailand

How merciful, loving, and gracious are the arms our Lord holds out to receive those who are wounded in the combat for His sake! In this our true joy far exceeds every bitterness the sorrow of this world can give. If we are wise, we shall long for these caresses.
Saint John of Ávila
