"A Foreigner to Worry and a Close Friend of Gaiety"
God tend to the hopeless-looking things. You are a Dominican, a
foreigner to worry and quite a close friend of gaiety…It seems to me
quite entrancing to be able to pile into bed realizing there is someone
as big as God to do all the worrying that has to be done. Worry, you
know, is a kind of reverence given to a situation because of its
magnitude; how small it must be through God’s eyes…You can’t get
everything done in a day, nor can you get any part of it done as well as
it could be, or even as well as you’d like it; so, like the rest of us,
you putter at your job with a normal amount of energy, for a reasonable
length of time, and go to bed with the humilating yet exhilarating
knowlege that you are only a child of God and not God Himself.” -Fr.
Walter Farrell, O.P.
