(St. Vincent de Paul, Priest)
R. In every age, O Lord, you have been our refuge.
Fill us at daybreak with your kindness, that we may shout for joy and gladness all our days. Ps_90
And where is Your kindness, Lord? We find it in the beauty of nature. We find it in the love of our neighbor. We find it in our jobs and homes and food and family. Where is your kindness, Lord, when all of these things seem to be so lacking in our lives? We find it in the lessons. We find it in the missionary. We find Your kindness in the quiet one who offers us consolation for the miseries we may have to endure. “In every age, O Lord, you have been our refuge.” Fill us with your love and compassion and friendship and companionship. For we are empty and need a little of Your joy and gladness to carry us through another day!
