BEAR THIS IN MIND WHEN “THE GOING GETS TOUGH”

16 May
BEAR THIS IN MIND WHEN “THE GOING GETS TOUGH”

Thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

We cannot love suffering for itself, but, aided by grace, we can love the will of God sufficiently to remain attached to it, even when it causes suffering.

God alone knows the sorrow which will result from His Will, for each one, until he sees the face of God.

Nevertheless, without knowing anything of it, without even wishing for such a knowledge, one can accept everything in advance, and love everything by considering it under this sovereign and beautiful form of the “holy will of God”.

– Laverty & Sons (eds), 1905
