“O thou maid-servant of God!…”

O thou maid-servant of God!
Thy writing was considered. Thank God that thou wert fed from the table which hath descended from heaven. That food is the “I am the bread which descended from heaven,” recorded in the Gospel. That is faith, certainty, love and knowledge. I ask God that, day by day, thy steps may progress, that thou mayest grow firmer in the love of God; that unto thee and thy kindred a blessing of God shall come, and that thou mayest remain protected and sheltered under all conditions. Thus, may thy weakness be changed to strength and thy inability to power.
