TO SEE GOD'S PERMISSION OF THE HAPPENING
St. Francis de Sales gives this advice: "We must have patience not only to be ill, but to be ill with the illness which God wills, in the place where He wills, and among such persons as He wills; and so of our tribulations."
"Love is patient." I Cor. 13:4
Find strength and consolation in prayer. You need God's grace to make any difficulty a means of greater personal holiness. Prayer secures that grace. You can conquer anything with God's grace, but nothing without it. Your prayer need not be long, but brief and definite. Take time to pray for the interests of Christ and His Church persecuted in so many countries today. Pray for the checking of the moral evils so prevalent even among Catholics.
