16th March


There is no better time for the practice of humility and patience than the time of sickness. How greatly we are assisted in recognising the just judgments of God, when we experience signs of decay and realize that death is hanging over us. All vain presumption falls away, and the falseness of pride gives way to the knowledge of our own nothingness. Every remnant of self-confidence dies within us, and in its place arises in our heart a spirit of self-abandonment and a most loving confidence in God alone.

Rovereto, 13.09.30
