“Confiding hope and consoling peace have attended my way through storms and dangers that would have terrified a soul whose rock is not Christ.” – St. Elizabeth Ann Seton
(Elizabeth Bayley Seton, Collected Writings, Volume 1, 245)
The eye of the storm is often the place of calm at the center of a tumultuous situation. In this image, Christ the “Rock” is the eye of the storm. St. Elizabeth’s intense experiences are appeased by the hope and peace received from Him.
Elizabeth speaks of hope and peace as confiding and consoling. Describe hope and peace in your life. How have these attended your way? What name(s) do you have for Christ? What would Christ say to you amid storms and dangers?
