"in communion with christ’s passion." † "the sickness accepted with patience and thanksgiving purifies the soul as the fire purifies gold." † "...because i know that the sickness i have is for the good of my soul and his glory." † "i am not afraid of death which i have waited for a long time. god will let me live through my death." - saint rafqa
