Advent Meditations

Do not be surprised if God often sends you occasions to suffer. The more he sends, the more he
shows that he loves you, and the happier you should be, because it is by suffering that he purifies you so that you may be more pleasing in his eyes. These trials make it easy for you to preserve yourselves from sin and to receive the graces of God in abundance. Act so that you may derive this fruit from the trials you experience. Father Alban Butler

Psalm 94:12 Blessed is the man you discipline, O LORD, 
the man you teach from your law;

Proverbs 3:12 For whom the Lord loveth, he chastiseth: and as a father in the son he pleaseth himself
Revelation 3:19 Those whom I love I rebuke and discipline. So be earnest, and repent.

Hebrews 12:6 because the Lord disciplines those he loves, and he punishes everyone he accepts as a son.
