Today’s quote:

Oh! No, my brethren, we should not be surprised at seeing changes in ourselves; but what we should do is to thank God equally for whichever of these states he may wish us to be in, whether it be one of joy and consolation, or sadness and affliction, and we should love all the states, no matter what they may be, in which it may please God to place us.

Vincent de Paul (Volume: 11 | Page#: 331) Repetition of Prayer, 11 November, 1656

Can I see both the good and the bad changes in myself?
