All we are asked

All we are asked to bear we can bear. That is a law of the spiritual life. The only hindrance to the working of this law, as of all benign laws, is fear.
--Elizabeth Goudge


  1. ...and fear comes from a lack of trust in God, always.

  2. Thank you for your very nice comments as always, Robert and Hannah. It is love that we lack when we are afraid--the love for Love(who is God)--for, as He told us, perfect love casts out fear. The source for the courage of the martyrs is Love; and it is the source of all courage. May He grant us the grace to bear all things well for love of Him.
