Self-Concern, a Kind of Wealth

Servant of God Madeleine Delbrel
"Don’t be overly concerned about your life because to be that concerned is a kind of wealth; then old age will speak to you of birth, and death, of resurrection. Time will seem to you like a small fold in the vastness of eternity; you will judge everything in the light of the eternal. 
"If you love the kingdom of heaven with genuine love you will rejoice in the fact that your understanding is at a loss in the face of the divine and you will try to have more faith."
The Joy of Believing

(Madeleine Delbrel (died 1964) was a French laywoman, writer and mystic devoted to caring for the poor and to evangelizing culture.)
