Blessed Jolenta (Yolanda) of Poland (d. 1298)
Jolenta was the daughter of Bela IV, King of Hungary. Her sister, St.
Kunigunde, was married to the Duke of Poland. Jolenta was sent to Poland
where her sister was to supervise her education. Eventually married to
Boleslaus, the Duke of Greater Poland, Jolenta was able to use her material
means to assist the poor, the sick, widows and orphans. Her husband joined
her in building hospitals, convents and churches so that he was surnamed
"the Pious." Upon the death of her husband and the marriage of two of her
daughters, Jolenta and her third daughter entered the convent of the Poor
Clares. War forced Jolenta to move to another convent where, despite her
reluctance, she was made abbess. So well did she serve her Franciscan
sisters by word and example that her fame and good works continued to spread
beyond the walls of the cloister. Her favorite devotion was the Passion of
Christ. Indeed, Jesus appeared to her, telling her of her coming death. Many
miracles, down to our own day, are said to have occurred at her grave.

You are my inheritance, O Lord. ~Psalm 16

And he said to them, "Why were you looking for me? Did you not know that I
must be in my Father's house?" But they did not understand what he said to
them. He went down with them and came to Nazareth, and was obedient to them;
and his mother kept all these things in her heart. ~Luke 2:41-51

God's ways are not our ways. As Jesus' own parents strove to understand Him,
so do we strive to understand God. Sometimes we just need to accept the fact
that He is God, He is on our side, He is with us and in us. You are my
inheritance, O Lord.

I pray that I may be comfortable not fully understanding God.  I pray that I
may know that God is with me always, helping me accomplish His will in my
