Those things we cannot change…

In what does your life consist except two things: (1) Active duties; and (2) passive circumstances. The first is under your control; do these in God’s name. The second is outside your control; these submit to in God’s name. Consider only the present; leave the past to God’s justice, the future to His Providence. Perfection of personality does not consist in knowing God’s plan, but in submitting to it as it reveals itself in the circumstances of life. There is really one shortcut to sanctity – the one Mary chose in the Visitation, the one Our Lord chose in Gethsemane – abandonment to the Divine Will.

– Rev. Fulton Sheen
