All For God

Brother Lawrence of the Resurrection
“God sometimes permits the body to suffer for the illness of our soul; be courageous, make a virtue of necessity.”
Practicing the Presence

[Patricia: Notice he doesn't say: 'God causes the body to suffer'. In any case, it is a reminder to use everything that comes to you. If suffering comes, then let suffering help to increase patience and faith, strengthening you to keep going, as Eckhart wrote, “without a why”. God sees the love behind even our puny efforts.]
