Carrying Your Cross

"If the Lord sends a cross, He also gives strength to carry it, and He also makes it lighter. One must not assert one's own will in such cases, but rather give himself over entirely to the will of God. It is not worthy of a Christian to go against the will of God; and after a person patiently endures the trials sent to him, the Lord sends spiritual joy."

- Metropolitan Nicholas (Mogilevsky) of Alma-Ata and Kazakhstan
