God's Will

Father Tadeusz Dajczer
"Maturity in faith means the willingness to give up to God everything that he gives us, totally entrusting ourselves to him. We should not attach ourselves to anything; not even to spiritual gifts, not even to Holy Communion. 
"God’s will is the only reality to which one may attach oneself, without claiming it for oneself. Everything besides God’s will is a gift and a means to reach the goal, but it is not the goal. If we claim that gift for ourselves, God will either destroy it or – through giving us the experience of suffering – show us that we have nothing to offer, that we are helpless and that it is he who gives everything."

Father Dajczer (died 2009) was a Polish priest and a professor of theology in Warsaw.
