"I am confident that the Lord has accepted my life for everyone. I am reminded repeatedly of Queen Esther who was taken from her people precisely to stand before the king for the people. I am a very poor and powerless Esther, but the King who has chosen me is eternally great and compassionate." - Sister Teresa Benedicta of the Cross
