"O my God, you and you alone are all wise and all knowing! You know, you have determined
everything that will happen to us from first to last. You have ordered things in the wisest way,
and you know what will be my lot year by year until I die. You know how long I have to live.
You know how I shall die. You have precisely ordained everything, sin excepted. Every event
of my life is the best for me that it could be, for it comes from you. You bring me on year by
year, by your wonderful Providence, from youth to age, with the most perfect wisdom, and
with the most perfect love."— Bl. John Henry Cardinal Newman, Everyday Meditations p. 103
