'Teach me silence, dearest Jesus,
when in sorrow and in pain,
For to hide in Thee my suffering
makes me love Thy cross again.
Teach me patience, dearest Jesus,
when all day my heart is tried
by those tiny teasing crosses,
welcome friends - that crush my pride.'
(from 'Listening to the Indwelling Presence' by a Religious, Pelligrini, 1940,
Painting: Frank W Benson, The Open Window, 1917
