When all is Darkness

                         'O Jesus, when all is darkness
                         and we feel our weakness and helplessness,
                         give us the sense of Your presence, Your love, and Your strength.
                         Help us to have perfect trust in Your protecting love and strengthening power,

                         so that nothing may frighten or worry us, for, living close to You, we shall see 
                         Your hand, Your purpose, 
                         Your will through all things.'

St. Ignatius Loyola
