We ought to receive everything as coming directly from our Father’s divine hand, who loves us and who, in all our trials, is working out His own end end — that of uniting us more closely to Himself. Launch your soul upon the sea of courage and holy abandonment to Him! Remember that nothing that troubles you and makes you afraid comes from God, for He is the Prince of Peace and has promised peace to men of good will.

– St. Elizabeth of the Trinity
