There is a state of resting in God, an absolute break from all intellectual activity, when one forms no plans, makes no decisions and for the first time really ceases to act, when one simply hands over the future to God’s will and “surrenders oneself to fate.”
Saint Theresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein)

One cannot desire freedom from the cross when one is especially chosen for the cross. […] The more lofty the degree of loving union to which God destines the soul, so much more profound and persistent must be its purification.
Saint Theresa Benedicta of the Cross (Edith Stein)
