“Is the pain in my own life all waste? Has no strength or even sweetness sprung out of my past sorrows? And when I look back on my sins, may I not sing Te Deum laudamus for all the pride they overthrew, all the humility they fostered, and all the gentleness and sympathy they begot. God has led me through many ways not of my own choosing – now high, now low – now in broad daylight, now in midnight gloom, and now in pelting storm. Yet though I am evil, He is good; and great, yea, omnipotent in goodness, since He has drawn good from the heart of evil, and He will build a home of everlasting life on the ruins of sin.”

Vincent McNabb, O.P. (1868-1943)
