How ever great our suffering…

“When physicians are treating the body they do not administer the same remedy in all cases. Neither does God, when treating the illnesses of the soul, regard a single kind of therapy as suitable for all conditions but He allots to each soul what is suitable for it and effects its cure. So let us give thanks while we are being created, however great our suffering, for the result is blessed.” ~ Maximos the Confessor, Various Texts on Theology, the Divine Economy, and Virtue and Vice, First Century, vol. 2, pg. 169
