John Henry Newman — There are wounds of the spirit…

There are wounds of the spirit which never close and are intended in God’s mercy to bring us nearer to Him, and to prevent us leaving Him by their very perpetuity.  Such wounds then may almost be taken as a pledge, or at least as a ground for a humble trust, that God will give us the great gift of perseverance to the end.  This is how I comfort myself in my own great bereavements.
John Henry Newman
