QUOTATION: Resignation to the Holy Will

St. Alphonsus Liguori
The masters of the spiritual life teach that, though the desire which certain souls have of suffering to give him pleasure is acceptable to him, he is yet more pleased with the conformity of those who wish for neither joy nor pain, but, in perfect resignation to his holy will, have no other desire than to fulfill whatever that will may be.

--St. Alphonsus Liguori, The Way of Salvation and Perfection
