Suffering

IMG_4802

“The dominant characteristic of an authentic spiritual life
is the gratitude that flows from trust—
not only for all the gifts that I receive from God,
but gratitude for all the suffering.
Because in that purifying experience,
suffering has often been the shortest path to intimacy with God.”

Brennan Manning
