“It is hard for us to see in the accidents and trails of life, in sickness, in bereavement, in financial loss, in cancerous bodies and leprous limbs, any Divine Purpose. That is why our blessed Lord had to take suffering upon Himself, in order to show us that it is the Father’s Cup. Every tear, disappointment and grieved heart is a blank check. If we write our name on it, it is worthless. If we sign it with Christ’s name, it is infinite in its value. In prosperity, Christ gives you His gifts; in suffering with faith, He gives you Himself.”

~Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen (Lenten & Easter Inspirations)
