Just like Saint Mother Theodore many saints "leaned on Providence." They are lessons we can all learn if only we will try. Don't you know it's so much easier to do it ourselves. "Leaning" is not what we are raised to do. Well, now it's time we did learn to "lean." I know I'm trying/.
In all your undertakings rely wholly on God's providence, through which alone they can succeed; but seek steadily on your part to cooperate with it, and then rest satisfied that if you are trusting all to God, whatever happens will be best for you, whether it seems to your own judgment good or bad.
St. Francis de Sales
Thanks be to God!
