Waiting

“Wait for the Lord; Be strong and let your heart take courage; Yes, wait for the Lord.” ~Psalm 27:14

I don’t know why I thought that turning a page on the calendar, changing the final digit on the date when I wrote a check, would immediately cause a difference in my pain.  After all, it’s been going on since January 2009.  Hope springs eternal, though, and somehow I thought things would be different.  I realized very quickly, however, when I ran out of pain pills because of a computer error at my mail order pharmacy, that there’s nothing magical about the start of a new year.  I keep waiting, though. Waiting and hoping.  And, of course, praying.

St. Catherine Laboure and The Miraculous Medal

I’ve been ready a daily prayer book for Advent, with scriptures, prayers, and other spiritual readings for the morning and evening of every day of Advent.  One of the earliest readings concerned St. Catherine, a reclusive Sister of Charity in France in the 1800’s.  During a vision early in her religious life St. Catherine described the exact design of what is now known as the “miraculous medal”, as it is said that those who wear it will receive favors through Mary’s intercession.  She refused to speak publicly about her visions to anyone but her confessor, but this is even now one of the most commonly worn and well-recognized religious medals.

One of the few quotes attributed to her is: “God always speaks to you when you approach him plainly and simply.”

I’ve been wearing one or the other of these constantly throughout Advent, and I find them comforting. Are there items, readings, or scriptures that have brought you comfort or inspiration this week?  Share them at Saints and Scripture Sunday and Spiritual Sundays.

The LORD will guide you always;
He will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame.
You will be like a well-watered garden
like a spring whose waters never fail.
~Isaiah 58: 11 & 12
