"The trouble into which your dissipations and distractions throw you, your sense of separation from God and all your resistance to what is good would cease if you received these painful states humbly; they are neither sins nor spiritual evils, but merely the loving chastisement of your Father, who uses this way of purifying you from all the stains of your former life. All that saddens you and makes you think you are lost will, if borne with patience, humility, and conformity to God's will, be changed into a treasure which will enrich you more in one day than would a whole year of consolation and ecstasies." (St. Claude de la Colombiere, Letters,1679)
