“How many times,
O my Lord God,
my life seems to be
without purpose
and my time a total waste!
But in you are the reasons
of my life and they are worthy of you!

In you is the exemplar of my life,
and in you are prepared for me
all graces necessary to live up to it!
How everything is worthy of you!
And I do not understand it!”
