The Blessing of Adversity: Though many people see primarily negatives in their troubles, benefits often come from such afflictions. They humble us, deepen our knowledge of God, strengthen our prayer lives, expose us to divine grace, enable us to see God’s faithfulness, lead us to the sacred Word, deepen our appreciation of divine providence, and draw us away from backsliding. Sweet are God’s uses of adversity.
