"Difficult experiences, trials of faith, or the problems of daily life will always be hard to bear. It is possible that your cross may have new situations that can afflict you - lack of strength, lack of rest, a pile-up of new obligations, a responsibility that crushes you. All of these can become very difficult experiences, but in the light of faith, Christ's yoke is easy and His burden light."(In the Arms of Mary, pg. 35)
"Man's tragedy lies in the fact that he does not trust the Lord and rejects His will. Namely, man avoids God's will in order to fulfill his own will. By so doing, he sentences himself to torment, which our good Father did not intend for him. Such torment is the consequence of his opposition to God's designs."
(Open Wide the Door to Christ, pg. 105-106)
