A Great and Consoling Truth

"...never lose sight of the great and consoling truth that nothing happens in this world but by the command of God, or at least, with His divine permission; and that, whatever He wills or permits turns infallibly to the advantage of those who are submissive and resigned. Even that which most disturbs our spiritual plans changes into something better for us. Keep firmly by this great principle and the most violent tempests will not be able to trouble the depth of your soul, even though they may ruffle the surface by disquieting the feelings." -from Abandonment to Divine Providence by Jean-Pierre de Caussade
