than a thousand elsewhere... Psalm 84:10a
He has waited so long for me."
"Our Lord has always been so good to me ...
If I were to stay on my knees for my entire life,
I still would not be able to
express my gratitude sufficiently."
Toward the end of her life, Mother Bakhita used to smile and say: "I travel slowly, one step at a time, because I am carrying two big suitcases. One of them contains my sins, and in the other, which is much heavier, are the infinite merits of Jesus. When I reach heaven I will open the suitcases and say to God: 'Eternal Father, now you can judge.' And to St. Peter: 'Close the door, because I'm staying.'"
