St. John of the Cross Novena: Day Five

From Degrees of Perfection:

15.  Remember always that everything that happens to you, whether prosperous or adverse, comes from God, so that you become neither puffed up in prosperity nor discouraged in adversity.

·         Reminiscent of Job.
·         Blessed be the name of God, no matter what happens to us.
·         This kind of trust is the very definition of humility, for me.

“Trust in God who does not fail those who seek him with a simple and righteous heart.”
The Dark Night, Book One, Chapter 10
