QUOTATION: Fear of Suffering

St. Alphonsus Liguori
Many spiritual persons would attain to union with God; but then they do not desire the contrarieties which God sends them: they fret at having to suffer from ill-health, from poverty, from affronts ; but, for want of resignation, they will never come to a perfect union with God.

--St. Alphonsus Liguori, The Holy Eucharist
