Trials, Detachment, and Attachment

Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity

O Good Master, what a trial You put me through, what a sword thrust into my heart, never will I be consoled! And despite all that, I give You thanks. I bless You. You have used this horrible trial to detach me from the things here-below and attach me more totally to You, to You alone, my Love, my Life, my Spouse.
Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity (1880–1906)
