I Just Love This

Saint Peter Julian Eymard said,

Abide in the home of the divine and fatherly goodness of God like His child who knows nothing, does nothing right, makes a mess of everything, but nevertheless lives always in His benevolence, confident of His love.

It's an angle of Our Lord's command to "become as little children" that I had never considered before and one that I can really relate to from the parent's perspective.

Reminds me, too, of Mother Teresa's

God has not called me to be successful; He has called me to be faithful.
