We ought, to give ourselves up to the feeling that corresponds to the one chosen, as, gratitude, love, or perhaps confusion, grief, and regret, though these last should be filial and accompanied by a lively confidence in God's goodness. Such is His way founded on His will; anything else arises from self-love for the natural man, and can lead us to no good. For the rest we must never neglect vigilance. Our Lord Jesus Christ linked these two rules together; watch and pray.
- Pere Cestac
Why should you suppose God is far off because you cannot perceive Him? He is always, you may be sure, near to those whose hearts are blank and sorrowful.
