"Sometimes God allows a relative or fellow worker to cause us problems in order to exercise our patience and humbleness; however, instead of being grateful for the chance God gives us, we react and refused to be cured. It is like refusing to pay the doctor who is giving us a shot when we are ill."
Father Paisios Eznepides (+1994)
