Easy for *you* to say

“When an apprentice gets hurt, or complains of being tired, the
workmen and peasants have this fine statement: ‘It is the trade
entering his body.’ Each time that we have some pain to go through,
we can say to ourselves quite truly that it is the universe–the
order and beauty of the world and the obedience of creation to
God–that are entering our body. After that how can we fail to bless
with tenderest gratitude the Love that sends us this gift?”
– Simone Weil [19th C], “Waiting on God” –
