Acceptance of God’s Will

In time, however, it came about that the referendum was approved by the Glen Ellyn Park District to condemn the property and tear it down. Tears came to my eyes as I read the news in the local paper. I thought I had failed after three years of trying to save the MaryKnoll. I felt totally drained and opened the Bible to hear the Lord’s words, He said, “you did not fail, you did everything humanly possible.” I accepted His will and peace came over me and I was able to let go, but never gave up hope that the mission would resume at another date and location.
