As the rose blooms in the rain, on this Gaudete Sunday may we lift our faces to the storm clouds and sing your praises anyway.

God, in your wisdom, you gave us waiting before blessing. You gave us frustration before achievement. You gave us trial and error before success. You gave us wrestling before realisation.
