My Beloved, there is nothing in this beautiful world that You created or that man has invented that can satisfy. Only You O Lord can bring with Yourself deep abiding peace, contentment and joy. Stay always with me. I too have been forgiven much like the women in today's Gospel. May I love You like them - follow You always and be ready to give You all as generously as they did.
