TREASURES FROM MISERIES

Blessed be the Lord in all His ways; His ways are higher
He Who makes persons stronger but not until they learn dependence on Him, the Life, than anything else
He Who makes persons mightier but not until they dethrone their ego and He alone be enthroned, the Almighty; breaking them deeply as to enter the depths of His power
He Who makes persons the first but not until they become zero/last among all.
He Who makes persons wise but not until they have been judged foolish by the worldly; He Who produces abundance of knowledge in one from a copious storehouse of regrets and pains
He Who brings freshness and resurrections from many deaths to self, in humiliations, He Who grants proportions of growth to the exchange rate of the proportion in dying to vices in old habits
He Who grants more trophies by allowing more crosses; graduation by tests; arrivals to new platforms by new forms of trials.
He Who establishes ranks of His power in one by permitting confrontations from ranks of spiritual combats
He Who grants the accomplishment of birthing but not unaccompanied by bleeding, finery personality only by refinery of threshing
He Who elevates one to association with hidden revelations but not until many immolating isolations
He Who elevates one to association with hidden revelations but not until many immolating isolations
When one’s conditions become all the more clueless, may these words above extinguish every mist of despair; in that hollow of worry, that they remember the Hallowed One still loves them
May they never forget the One Who says “Let there be light” but not until darkness is evident.
He Who grants none of these above because one craves for them, but because there is no desire in oneself except to glorify Him alone.

Fr. Ignatius Mary (cmdorg.org) TMTJ
