St. John of Kronstadt on Sickness

“When you see your body wasted away through sickness, do not murmur against God, but say, The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; blessed be the Name of the Lord, Job 1:21. You are accustomed to look upon your body as upon your own inalienable property, but that is quite wrong, because your body is God’s edifice.”
