54-day Rosary Novena: Day 8 - Sorrowful in Petition

Confidence – Thirteenth Day of October

Confidence.

“Have confidence.” — St. Mark 6:50.

THIRTEENTH DAY.

It is particularly in great necessities that we should show that we truly confide in God. Believe me, three workmen will do more than ten when God lends His hand; and He will always do this whenever He takes away human means and we are necessitated to do that which is beyond our strength. — St. Vincent de Paul.

The steward of the house said one day to this saint that he had not a cent for the ordinary expenses, nor for those of an ordination which would soon take place. He replied with tranquil heart and face serene, full of confidence in God: “Oh, what good news! Blessed be God! Now is the time to prove that we trust in His goodness. The treasures of Providence are infinite; our distrust dishonors Him.”

Prayer.

I ask not riches, O my God, but what Thou knowest to be necessary for me. Thou art my Father, a Father infinitely rich; I am Thy child.
