“The test of whether we have truly found the peace of God will be in how we face the sufferings which befall us. There are many Christians who bend their knees before the cross of Jesus Christ well enough, but who do nothing but resist and struggle against every affliction in their own lives.” – Dietrich Bonhoeffer, The Secret of Suffering, March 1938
Grant me the grace to struggle less against the pain of affliction, choosing instead to accept the greater gift of the peace of your Presence, and the comfort of Spirit. Amen”
