Catherine Doherty on Getting through the Hard Times

“We Russians used to talk about this in New York.  We had a very rough time when we first came.  We were overworked and underpaid.  We used to discuss among ourselves how we survived.  We came to the conclusion that we survived because we really believed that God was our rest.  When I asked a friend of mine, ‘How do we survive?’ this is exactly what she said:  ‘Oh, we have Christ for a pillow.’”
