I, like a green olive tree flourishing in the house of God,
Trust in the mercy of God forever and ever. – Ps 52:10

not in the words of the preacher
not in the promises of the officials
not in the power of the wealthy
not in the influence of the celebrities
not in the knowledge of the scientists
not in the truth of the philosophers
not in the wisdom of the theologians
not in the feats of the heroes
not in the works of the saints
not in my own works
not in my own sacrifices
not in anything on my own merit
my trust is only in the mercy of God
and his boundless love flowing
from the wounds in his body
