Curing Passions


“In the same way that a powerful medicinesufferingwillingly2 cures an illness, 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.”

                          ~Amma Syncletice

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?

Lord, when the waves of pain threaten to engulf me…
Draw me to the tranquil waters of Your peace.
When the rocks cause me to stumble and fall…
Let Your light guide me safely along the path.
Lead me to the stillness, be my consolation,
Guide me to the haven of Your Sacred heart.
In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
