“In accordance with your humility will be given to you endurance in your distress; and in accordance with your endurance weight will be lifted from your soul which will be consoled in its troubles; and in accordance with the consolation of your soul, your love in God will increase; and in accordance with your love, spiritual joy will increase. When our compassionate Father is of the will to relieve those who are shown to be true sons in their temptations, He does not take away temptation, but He imparts to them endurance under these temptations, and all that for the good which they receive through it, to the perfection of their souls. May Christ in His grace make us worthy of bearing evils for the sake of His love, with thanksgiving of heart. Amen”
St Isaac of Nineveh, Mystic Treaties
