Grace in Exile


And there the Lord opened the sense of my unbelief that I might at last remember my sins and be converted with all my heart to the Lord my God....I cannot be silent about the great grace which the Lord has deigned to bestow upon me in the land of my captivity; for this I can give to God in return after having been chastened by Him, to exalt and praise His wonders before every nation anywhere under heaven. (The Confession of St. Patrick)

Thus says the Lord: Behold, I will restore the fortunes of the tents of Jacob, and have compassion on his dwellings; the city shall be rebuilt upon its mound, and the palace shall stand where it used to be. Out of them shall come songs of thanksgiving, and the voices of those who make merry. (Jeremiah 30: 18-19)
