Blessed Are They Who Mourn, for they will be comfortedSirach 34:19
The words of Sirach should bring us great comfort if we are in distress. They allow us to know the Lord does not desert us, but stays with us at all times.
”The eyes of the Lord are on those who love him,
a mighty shield and strong support,
a shelter from scorching wind and a shade from noonday sun,
a guard against stumbling and a help against falling.”
