“My Lord God,
I have no idea where I am going.
I do not see the road ahead of me.
I cannot know for certain
Where it will end.
Nor do I really know myself,
And the fact that I think
That I am following Your Will
Does not mean that I am actually doing so.
But I believe that
The desire to please You
Does in fact please You.
And I hope I have that desire
In all that I am doing…”.
(Thomas Merton, 1915-1968)
