His Permissive Will

“In the same way that a powerful medicine cures an illness,St SycleticaAmmaDesertMothers so illness itself is a medicine to cure a passion. And there is much profit of soul in bearing illness quietly and giving thanks to God.”

                                                  -St (Amma) Syncletica 

For Reflection: 

Sometimes God permits an illness or contradiction in our life so that we might grow in virtue, be healed, or attain a deeper spiritual commitment. Could this be the case for me in a current difficulty? How does this prove Romans 8:28?
