A friend of mine recently shared this quote that was hand written in the front of his Magnificat:
"Accept with joy the circumstances that are placed in your life, because these are the means God has placed for you to become holy."
The quote came from a book he had read. I am still trying to find the book source.
Fr. Mike actually talks about that too, in his youtube video titled Will God Heal My Wounds?
Lord, grant that we may fix our eyes on your Cross. In times of gladness and sadness, that we may unite it with your love for us. Help us to be attentive to others. Fill us with your graces to distinguish compassion and pity when others are in distress. Purify our hearts. Amen.
