Today’s Reflection April 16

Place your entire physical and spiritual welfare in God’s hands. Abandon to the fatherly concerns of his divine providence every care for your health, reputation, property, and business; for those near to you; for your past sins; for your soul’s progress in virtue and love of him; for your life, death and especially your salvation and eternity – in a word, all your cares. Rest in the assurance that in his pure goodness, he’ll watch with particular tenderness over all your responsibilities and cares, arranging all things for the greater good. Don’t rely on the power or influence of friends; on your own money; on your intellect, knowledge, or strength; on your good desires and resolutions; or on human means. Don’t rely on any created thing. Rely on God’s mercy alone.

-St. John Eudes
