all is well

St. Josemaria Escriva writes in The Forge (#335), “My little friend, say to him: Jesus, knowing that I love you and that you love me, nothing else matters – all is well.”

This sentiment is shared by saints and mystics throughout history.  All is well.  It’s helpful for us to remember this in light of economic difficulties, religious controversies, political battles & power struggles, etc.  All is still well.  All will remain to be well.  The reality behind all of the junk that we allow our lives to be clouded with is the truth that God created us, loves us and will always remain with us.  Because of that, all is well.
