St Ephraim the Syrian: Sorrows

“In accordance with His plan, God permits each of us to be afflicted with various sorrows, so that it becomes clear which of us loves Him. And the evil one also tempts and torments our soul, not as much as he wants, but only as much as God allows him to.” – St Ephraim the Syrian

"Therefore be sure that every prayer that is not fulfilled is certainly harmful..." - St Ephraim the Syrian
