Patristic Quote for the Day

"Be perfectly assured of this: although we can't understand why God ordained such troubles, the One who is wise and who loves us arranged them for us... God knows that He is appointing what is best for each person. He knows why the terms of life that He fixes for us are unequal." St. Basil the Great, Letter V:2

[This, by the way, reminds me of a quote from Chemnitz where he speaks of the crosses by which God conforms us to the image of His Son being crafted for us from eternity]
