Oh how desirable is this union with God’s will! Happy is the soul that has reached it. Such a soul will live tranquilly in this life, and in the next as well. Nothing in earthly events afflicts it unless it finds itself in some danger of losing God or sees that He is offended: neither sickness, nor poverty, nor death…for the soul sees well that the Lord knows what He is doing better than it knows what it is desiring.
– St. Teresa of Avila
