blessed is the man who trusts in the lord, whose trust is in the lord.
divine tranquillity grows from the life of god in the soul, which is the same as the life of pure love. why should a soul be otherwise than tranquil, which seeks for nothing but what comes in the providence of god; and which, forgetful of self, has nothing to do but to love? it has an innate conviction, strong as the everlasting foundations, that, if there is a god above us, all is well, all must be well.
