If God allows so much pain and so much suffering, He must have something to say through it. Whoever believes and accepts things in such a way, has come to a point where he doesn’t care much whether he was cured or not, whether he will be or not. That’s not the issue. When man reaches this stage in faith, he feels as if cure was never an issue, anyway. This happens, because so much grace and redemption come into man and the presence of God becomes so intense, that everything changes.
In order to be at peace, you have to renounce yourself, abandon the worldly spirit and truly be- lieve in Christ. Do so, even if the words of the Gos- pel go against your reasoning and especially when it seems to you that you supposedly know better than God and you’re ready to advise Him.
