There is truly much suffering on earth; mankind languishes under its pressure, but it does not recognize itself as needing rearing and therefore rebels against it inwardly, where it should just devotedly fall into line, so that every difficulty would again be taken from it and the help of God appears obviously that God as loving father would be recognized by everyone, who wants to recognize him.

"Whom God loves."

9. April 1953. B.D. NR. 5647.

Whom God loves, him he has quite often walk on stony ways and carry burdens, which almost overwhelm him, but always only for his best, for every burden of the cross can bring about blessings with the right attitude towards him, who directs his fate. Whom God loves Ė his love is certainly directed to all his creatures, but particularly to those, who no longer have to go far to reach the last aim. He knows the disposition of each one man, and so he also knows, how the individual man stands to his God and father from eternity, and accordingly he often touches him to help him to reach the aim. And only so you are allowed to explain to yourselves that often men loyal to God, who obviously do his will, must suffer and must often wage a difficult life struggle, which now and then has the goodness and love of God doubting. God knows it, for what everything is good, and so men would just be convinced of his love and goodness, they would also recognize everything difficult as sending of God and not be rebellious; they would know being seized by Godís love and patiently wait, until fate takes a turn again. There is truly much suffering on earth; mankind languishes under its pressure, but it does not recognize itself as needing rearing and therefore rebels against it inwardly, where it should just devotedly fall into line, so that every difficulty would again be taken from it and the help of God appears obviously that God as loving father would be recognized by everyone, who wants to recognize him. Whom God loves, he lets suffer. These words are certainly hardly expressed, for no man thinks about that suffering is a truly effective means of bringing up in a world, where just always only that is striven for, what pleases the body, where Godís love is not seen in states of trouble and of sorrow. And nevertheless it is his love, which expresses itself so, as it is helpful for the soul. For God knows about the blessing of suffering, and he for that reason often applies such means, to keep men back from the earthly world. He rather wants to see them suffering than to come to an end in the mire of the word and their sin. He knows that illness and pain can produce a change, but that the world can never offer a spiritual success for the soul; that for that reason the world must first be put aside, to which God gives his indirect help, by him keeping men back from the world and its dangers through means, which certainly apparently have the love of God missing, but are never corrupting for the soul, unless man rises up against the fate and he calls for his opponent. Then he will certainly be helped, but differently, than man thinks Ė he certainly helps, but never without service in return. And this service in return is letting him have the soul. For that reason resign yourselves to the will of God, so you are affected by trouble and suffering, do not grumble and complain; bend your head under his arrangement, and direct your eyes only to him. And he will take the cross from you; he will make it easy for you, as soon as you leave yourselves to him and his merciful guidance. For you can always know yourselves loved by him, who through suffering and trouble want to win you yourselves for him; who wants to purify your soul and again and again gives it the opportunity to test yourselves in patience and gentleness, so that then the help of God comes visibly; so that his love intervenes visibly and he also heals all wounds at the right time.
Amen. B.D. NR. 5647.
