Living with the questions

Be patient toward all that is unresolved in your heart, and try to love the questions themselves.

—Rainer Marie Rilke


These are beautiful, grace-filled words. They speak out of a wisdom that holds together Truth and Love.

I will remember these words as I enter a new year on this journey, as I seek deeper communion with God, my family, the Church, the world, and creation.

I will try to love the questions, and be patient toward all that is unresolved in my heart. I will attempt to speak with truth and love as I am real with others.

Grant us wisdom, grant us courage
for the living of these days.
