Patience in the trial – Apophthegmata Patrum

passion-of-our-lord

A certain brother, who had vanquished Satan in every thing, subsequently had his eyes blinded by Satan so that he could not see, yet this blessed man did not pray for himself, and that he might be able to see, but he only prayed that he might be able to endure patiently his trial; and through his constancy his eyes were opened.

[Apophthegmata Patrum]
