From the Letters of St. Paul of the Cross

Don’t refuse the treatments when you are sick but with a smiling face accept them all in the loving chalice of Jesus. Be grateful to those who look after you when you are ill, accepting what they say you must take. In a word, be like a nice little babe who rests quite happily in the arms and bosom of its mother. Stay in bed as if you were on the cross. Jesus prayed for three hours on the cross; it was truly a crucified prayer, devoid of all consolation either from within or without. Pray to Jesus to impress it upon your heart.  (L.I, 154f)
