A Sublime Hope

Robert Cardinal Sarah

In silence, man can tell how limited earthly time is. In sickness it is possible for us to live almost perfectly attuned to God. The silent examination of conscience, at the heart of the pain, allows man to look at what he has made of his life and what remains is for him to accomplish. Sickness is a sublime hope in the great silence of God. If man rebels against sickness, he falls little by little into a sterile despair, a blind alley, and aggressive anxious refusal. Rebellion is not resistance, which is first and foremost a silent interior step.
