Spiritual Message of the Day 23/2

Abba Anthony besought God to inform him why young children died while so many old men lived, why upright men were poor while the wicked were rich, why some were blind and others had their sight, and why the righteous suffered from illness while the wicked were healthy. A voice came to him saying, “Anthony, take care of your own self, for these matters are the judgements of God.” – The Paradise of the Holy Fathers
