It’s a beautiful piece and apt, too, for those who still wait and cannot wait. Food for thought.
I just had to share this. It’s a very beautiful piece written about the preciousness of waiting. I got this during a retreat I attended around two years ago.
The Sacrament Of Waiting
Fr. James Donelan, S.J.
The English poet John Milton wrote that those who serve only also stand and wait. I think I would go further and say that those who wait render the highest form of service. Waiting requires more discipline, more self-control and emotional maturity, more unshakable faith in our cause, more unwavering hope in the future, more sustaining love in our hearts that all the greatest deeds of deering-do go by the name of action.
Waiting is a mystery – a natural sacrament of life – there is a meaning hidden in all the times we have to wait. It must be an important mystery because there is so much waiting in our lives.
