One friend who dies not

 God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble. - Psalm 46:1
Beams of light illuminating the sanctuary of St. Peters Basilica, taken on my trip through Rome. 
St Peter's Basilica ~ Roma

"Dearest Lord!  Make us remember, when the world is cold and dreary and we know not where to turn for comfort, that there is always one spot bright and cheerful - the Sanctuary. 

When we are in desolation of spirit; when all who are dear to us have passed away, like summer flowers, and none are left to love us and care for us, whisper to our troubled souls that there is one friend who dies not - one whose loves never changes - Jesus on the altar."  ~ Fr. Augustine

Quoted in Moments Divine Before the Blessed Sacrament,
