June 6 ~ Daily wisdom from the writings of St. Paul of the Cross

Growing with Sickness

Oh what beautiful virtues can be practiced in sickness! Above all, love of humiliation, helplessness, gratitude and gentleness of heart towards those who take care of you, blind obedience to the doctor and the nurses. Keep your countenance cheerful and remain in bed as on the Cross of the Savior. Love to suffer those pains and fevers as the Lord sends them.
