St. Vincent of Lerins on the Preciousness of Time
"[St. Vincent of Lerins] reflected that time is always snatching something from us; its fleeting moments pass as quick as they come, never, never more to return, as water which is gone from its source runs to it no more. Our course is almost run out; the past time appears as a shadow; so will that which is now to come when it shall be once over, and no tears, no entreaties, no endeavours, can recall the least moment we have already let slip unimproved."
-Fr. Butler on Life of St. Vincent of Lerins, "The Lives of the Fathers, Martyrs, and other Principal Saints", 1821

My family and I were watching a wind burst during Hurricane Ian today - and we all saw a gigantic pine tree fall down right in front of our house - onto the driveway. I then lit our blessed candle... we said prayers. All are safe... no property damage.
