Lord, when illness strikes
my life seems to collapse around me.
The work routine crumbles away,
and everything’s just a heap of ruins.

Yet, Lord, in all the sufferings
I know You are with me.
You are my rock.
You are my support, my sure foundation
who never gives way, who never lets me know.
You are my strength who keeps me going.

Lord, what would I do without Your help?
I thank You.

Amen.

-- By Columban Fr. Patrick Sayles
