“Why God permits crosses: He permits mental crosses, like worries, fear, anxieties, to make us feel His absence.  If our love of goodness does not draw us to Him, at least our weariness will throw us back to Him.  He permits physical crosses like sufferings to make us feel His Presence.  Sickness forcibly draws us away from the world and its pleasures, and makes us realize that His scarred Hands cannot touch us without leaving wounds.” Archbishop Fulton Sheen (About Crosses)
