A card found in Canon David Murphy’s prayerbook

Do not look forward to what might happen tomorrow;

the same Everlasting Father who cares for you today,

will take care of you tomorrow, and every day.

Either he will shield you from suffering,

or he will give you unfailing strength to bear it.

Be at peace, then,

and put aside all anxious thoughts and imaginings.

St Francis de Sales
