Let us accept God’s will and be firmly resolved to build our whole life in accordance with what our faith teaches and demands. We can be sure this involves struggle and suffering and pain, but if we truly have faith we will never feel we have lost God’s favor. In the midst of sorrow and even calumny, we will experience a happiness which moves us to love others, to help them share in our supernatural joy. – Christ is Passing By, p. 139
When someone accepts only a part of what he considers to be his vocation from God, then it ceases to be a way of responding to God and becomes rather a way of responding to oneself. – P. Rodriguez, op. Cit.
