Better Than

Better than wealth that calamities can wash away
is wealth in heaven that lasts for all of eternity.
Better than the costliest perfume that coats the body
is the perfumed scent of a clean and pure soul.
Better than beauty that decays and turns to dust
is the grandeur of God overflowing and illuminating one's countenance.
And so I pray:  May God grant me the grace not to settle for less.
Our Lady of Lourdes
