Thoughts for 2012 - or Any Other Year

We may not know what 2012 holds for us,
but this peom by St. Teresa of Avila encourages us to hope
and set our hearts at ease. 

              Nada de turbe
           Nada te espante
            Todo se pasa
           Dios no se muda
               La Paciencia todo lo alcanza
            Quien a Dios tiene
          Nada le falta
           Solo Dios basta

            May nothing disturb you
             May nothing astonish you 
           Everything passes
           God does not go away
            Patience can attain anything
             He who has God within
             Does not lack anything
            God is everything

 It is especially lovely when set to this haunting Taize chant.

Be back after I leave hospital.

God Bless
