My God, how deceiving this present life is! How desirable is eternity, and how happy are those who long for it! Therefore, hold on tightly to the merciful hand of God, because He wants to take us all with Him. Let us be loving and humble of heart toward all, but particularly those closest to us; let us walk together in peace, supporting one another, without giving way in time of trials, and never losing heart. God will never abandon us unless we abandon Him first; therefore, let us hold His hand ever so tightly ... just as Saint Denis held His hand.
