Evil is changed into good when it is received in patience through the love of God. On the other hand, good is changed into evil when we become attached to it through the love of self. True good lies only in detachment of self and abandonment to God. You are now in the trial. Put yourself confidently and without reservation into His hand.

What I would not sacrifice to see you once more restored in body, but heartily sick of the love of the world Attachment to ourselves is a thousand times more infectious than a contagious poison. For it contains the venom of self.

I pray for you with all my heart.
