You will lose nothing of what you have renounced for the Lord’s sake. For in its own time, it will return to you greatly multiplied. ~ St. Mark the Ascetic
Today, my 40-day St. Michael’s Lent novena comes to an end. And it ends on the 18th day of March, a date very close to my heart. When I first began the novena, I had looked up its end date and upon seeing it, wondered at its significance. Today, this quote comes and its promise lights up the windows of my heart,
In its own time, it will return to you greatly multiplied.
Soon, it will be 14 years since I began waiting for the fulfilment of Philemon 1: 12. Sometimes we do not understand why we wait and look out for something.
But wait we do. That is hope.
