But Not the Folly (or: how to face the world)

‘Faith, joy, optimism.  
 But not the folly of closing your eyes to reality.’

St. Josemaria Escriva

  1. We might well want to close our eyes when we see such atrocities happening in our world...but there can still be some joy, some optimism for us to know, when we trust in God's mercy and power over evil! xx
