He Waits For Us; He Walks With Us

The Lord takes His time.
But even He,
in this relationship with us,
has a lot of patience.
Not only do we have to have patience:
He has! He waits for us!
And He waits for us until the end of life!

Think of the good thief,
right at the end,
at the very end,
he acknowledged God.

The Lord walks with us,
but often does not reveal Himself,
as in the case
of the disciples of Emmaus.
The Lord is involved in our lives,
that's for sure!
But often we do not see.

This demands our patience.

But the Lord who walks with us,
He also has a lot of patience with us.

~Pope Francis
