Here is another excerpt from "The Inward Life" that I think is good for us to reflect on during these days:
"...nothing matters except that you should be united with Him in loving trust, and conformity of will. He can only do what is best for every one of us. So we will trust Him in everything, from the greatest to the least."
And then, in another letter, Mother Stuart wrote: "How glad I am that you have now the real light about God being pleased with us, for it is most important to believe it. It makes such a difference to our courage. Saint Francis de Sales puts it nicely when he says 'God is content with little, for He knows that we have not much.'"
