“Trust in your [Heavenly] Father. If it would have been good for you, you would have received it. Before God, you are much as a little child is before you. All day long the child cries his eyes out so that you will give him a knife to play with. You wisely refuse his plea and pay no attention to his wailing… You deny him in little things so as to preserve more important things. You want the child to grow up safely and possess all his own goods without danger.” ~St Augustine, Sermon 80, 2, 7-8.
