Man can live far from God — not outside God.
God is wherever we are.
Even in suffering?
Even in suffering.
~ Elie Wiesel
Lord, remember not only the men of good will, but also those of ill will. But do not remember all the suffering they have inflicted upon us. Remember rather the fruits we have brought, thanks to this suffering: our comradeship, our loyalty, our humility, the courage, the generosity, the greatness of heart that has grown out of this. And when they come to judgment, let all the fruits we have borne be their forgiveness.
(Found on a scrap of paper at the liberation of Ravensbruck Concentration Camp in Germany)
