Adelaide Anne Procter (1825-1864), a convert to Roman Catholicism, was a good friend of Charles Dickens and a skilled linguist and poet.  She also dedicated her life to educating the poor, visiting the sick, and sheltering the homeless.  She spend the last fifteen months of her life in great physical pain.  I refer you, O reader, to her hymn, “I Do Not Ask, O Lord,” as a useful meditation, given that fact.
