“I am poor like you: I have to get my living with my hands:

but no lord nor lady can be so happy as me, if they haven’t got

love of God in their souls . Think what it is - not to hate anything but sin;

to be full of love to every creature; to be frightened at nothing;

to be sure that all things will turn to good; not to mind pain,

because it is our Father’s will; to know that nothing – no,

not if the earth was to be burnt up, or the waters come and drown us -

nothing could part us from God who loves us, and who fills our souls

with peace and joy, because we are sure that what-ever he wills is holy, just, and good.

Dear friends, come and take this blessedness;

 It is offered to you; it is the good news that Jesus came to preach to the poor.

It is not like the riches of this world, so that the more one gets, the less the rest can have. God is without end; his love is without end”.                               


                                                       George Eliot (1819-1890)   Adam Bede
