Words of encouragement that God is close to us whenever we strive to discern God’s will:
If you have rooted yourself in the profound conviction that while we are nothing, we can achieve a lot with God’s help.
We do this when, placing ourselves in a state of complete detachment, we turn for guidance to obedience as making known to us the will of the Master we serve
and who has pledged himself to give us his powerful help by means of his grace in the various ministries that he assigns to us.
Letter to Jean Baptiste Mille, 25 September 1831, EO VIII n 404
