The Deacon's Bench

“Now occasionally, God in his providential care permits us to experience severe pain and suffering, but in the final analysis, always for some greater good. The full weight of our sorrows, if patiently endured after Cardinal Newman’s example, often provides us with abundant opportunities for growth. In our perseverance we discern God’s Spirit guiding us, prompting us to follow ‘His kindly light of truth’ along the path He has chosen for each one of us.”

 — Deacon Jack Sullivan, in his homily, delivered today at Westminster Cathedral.
