I was hoping that somewhere someone had authoritatively defined this phrase.

Any ideas?

Thanks so very much; do you have anything prior to the 1960s by any chance?

Wondering about that too. It does a sort of device for ecclesiastical political scheming in the post V2 world rather than something with any actual spiritual or theological meaning.
Padre Pio: Pray, hope, and don't worry. Worry is useless. God is merciful and will hear your prayer.

I would like to find it too but this is such a logical statement and so straight forward that I don't think it requires anymore although I to am gunshy of post VII statements.
