You have followed my teaching, way of life, purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, persecutions, and sufferings... But you, remain faithful to what you have learned and believed, because you know from whom you learned it (2 Tim 3:10-15)
From "Mother Teresa's Secret Fire"
As St. Therese proclaimed, indeed, "All is grace." Even our pain and trials carry the seed of hidden blessings, blessings far greater than the trials that veil them. Mother Teresa insisted that, in the last analysis, there are no problems, only gifts, since without exception, "in everything God works for good" (Rom 8:28)
