God alone

He who has the right confidence in God knows that his prayer is never condemned by God, Whose merciful glance is always turned toward us; but he also knows that God alone can judge what profits us best and that, therefore, His answer is always the answer of omniscient charity.
-- Dietrich von Hildebrand in Transformation in Christ


  1. "Right confidence in God." I like that. I need that.

  2. Thank you so much for writing, dear Anne. Please forgive me for taking such a long time to reply, but I've been away for a while. "Right confidence" is everything, isn't it, because it shows God that we understand--even if only a little--His infinite majesty and our littleness in comparison. May He richly bless you and your dear ones.
