Words of Consolation for the Sick and Afflicted
Sufferings borne with resignation to God’s holy will are a sign of predestination. Sick persons who do not suffer with patience and resignation to the will of God, are to be pitied, for they do not realize the priceless treasures which God has bestowed on them. We do not see what good is hidden in sickness.
Sufferings borne patiently bring health to the soul, and what is better for us than this? Sickness of the body makes satisfaction for our sins, urges us to seek God and prevents us from committing sin. How much easier it is to lead a devout life and to avoid sin when one is ill! Let us accept illness patiently from the hands of God, with submission to His all-holy designs.
