When no one listens...

"When no one listens to me any more,
God still listens to me.

"When I can no longer talk to anyone
or call upon anyone,
I can always talk to God.

"When there is no longer anyone
to help me deal with a need or expectation
that goes beyond the human capacity for hope,
he can help me.

"When I have been plunged
into complete solitude...;
if I pray,
I am never totally alone."

from Spe Salvi, 32
the latest Encyclical by Pope Benedict XVI
