Sunday, March 5th

During these painful times when you feel a terrible void, think how He is enlarging the capacity of your soul so that it can receive Him, making it, as it were, infinite just as He is infinite. So, as far as your will is concerned, try to remain perfectly joyous beneath the hand that is crucifying you … look upon each pain as a token of love coming to you directly from God, in order that He may unite you to Him.

– St. Elizabeth of the Trinity
