I know many friends who live in much angst
over someone they love
who seems to be making a complete
disaster of their lives.
This is a little gift for you
from Pope Francis:
"God is in every person’s life ...
Even if the life of a person has been a disaster,
even if it is destroyed by vices, drugs, or anything else – God is in this person’s life.
You can – you must – try to seek God in every human life.
Though someone’s life be a land full of thorns and weeds,
there is always a space in which the good seed can grow.
You have to trust God."
