God has created me to do him some definite service

he has not committed to another.

I have my mission – I may never know it in this life,

but I shall be told it in the next.

I am a link in a chain, a bond of connection between persons.

He has not created me for naught.

I shall do good, I shall be an angel of peace,

a preacher of truth in my own place while not intending it;

if I do but keep his commandments.

Therefore I will trust him. Whatever, wherever I am.

I can never be thrown away.

If I am in sickness, my sickness may serve him;

If I am in perplexity, my perplexity may serve him;

If I am in sorrow, my sorrow may serve him.

He does nothing in vain. He knows what he is about.

Saint John Henry Newman
