Strange Way to the Goal, but it is God’s Way

Our goal is God, the source of all good… He wishes to listen to your prayer, and so he ordained that you experience poverty, distress, abandonment, weariness, and universal scorn… [O]ur blessed Lord is telling you that he desires to include you among his beloved sons, provided that you remain steadfast in his ways, for this is the way he treats his friends and makes them holy.
Saint Jerome Emiliani
