Catherine: "Leave the Measuring Up To Him"

Some words from a wise woman of the 14th Century:

"I can do anything through Christ crucified, for I know truly that he does not lay a heavier load on his creatures than they can bear.

"So I want to leave the measuring up to him and, for my part, bear these things with true patience... I know that whatever God grants or permits, he does it for my good, so that I may be made holy in him" (Saint Catherine of Siena, 1347-1390).
