Sunday Lent 2

Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart,
and try to love the questions themselves
as if they were locked rooms
or books written in a very foreign language.

Do not search for the answers, which could not be given to you now,
because you would not be able to live them.
And the point is to live everything.
Live the questions now.
Perhaps then, someday far in the future,
you will gradually,
without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.

Rainer Maria Rilke

One thought on “Sunday Lent 2

  1. What an insightful reading. Patience in all things. We often want the answers to our prayers and questions immediately but as the reading states we are not always prepared for the answer. So perhaps what we should be praying for is the patience to wait for the right time since as the song says there is ‘a time for every purpose under heaven’.
