Providence to the Rescue

The beauty of our premises here at Our Lady of the Angels is a marvelous tribute to God’s Providence and daily reminder of His love. Divine Providence is a powerful manifestation of the Father’s care, power, and love in the tiny and giant events of our lives. It is a challenge to see the good, and possible good, in every circumstance; but it is so worth the effort to believe, that “all works for our good” – because it’s true! The daily manifestations of Providence especially in the middle of the day-to-day humdrum astonish us, and teach us that God is in everything.
