They had but little faith; they feared; they had no great confidence or peace, but at least they did not keep away from Christ ... Do not keep from him, but, when you are in trouble, come to him day by day, asking him earnestly and perseveringly for those favors which he alone can give ...
J. H. Newman, Sermon for the Fourth Sunday after the Epiphany, 1848
