There is no need to be dismayed if love sometimes follows torturous ways. Grace has the power to make straight the paths of human love. – Pope John Paul II
Let us not grow weary if our efforts of love do not bring us quickly the fruits we desire. Love has its own time, its own course. It may seem slow in accomplishing its task, but we must never lose faith in it. It is still our best option, and many times, our only chance. For though we may not see how it works, it will certainly act in favor of good. It alone can change and touch the human heart. In its own beautiful time, it will accomplish more than we could ever expect it to do, creating miracles along the way and moving even mountains to make way where we thought there could never be a way.
For as the rain comes down and the snow from the sky, and doesn’t return there, but waters the earth, and makes it grow and bud, and gives seed to the sower and bread to the eater; so is my word that goes out of my mouth: it will not return to me void, but it will accomplish that which I please, and it will prosper in the thing I sent it to do. – Isaiah 55:10-11,WEB
