"I have told you this so that you might have peace in me"

Saint Raphael Arnaiz Baron (1911-1938), a Spanish Trappist monk 
Spiritual writings, 20/01/1937 (trans. Mairin Mitchell)
"I have told you this so that you might have peace in me"

“Lord God, I see that I have great need of patience: for my wishes are often contradicted as long as I live. However I arrange to be at peace, my life cannot escape from war and grief. True, my son. But I do not wish you to be looking for a peace that is free from trials or immune to contradictions. Think rather that you have found peace when you have been well tested in plenty of trials, and proved in many adversities” (Imitation of Christ 3,12)...

How mistaken at times are those of us who are looking for the real peace of God... What we are seeking is often not the peace of God but of the world... When the world talks of peace, that is how it thinks of it. When the world looks for peace, that is how it imagines it - silence, quietude, love without tears, much hidden selfishness. Man seeks that peace in order to rest, to avoid suffering; he looks for the human peace that is experienced through the senses, that peace which the world depicts in a sunny cloister with cypresses and birds, a peace without temptations and the Cross...

Today I bless from the depths of my soul that God who loves me so much... He loves me with all my miseries, sins, my tears and my joys; He loves me in that peace of which A Kempis speaks [in the Imitation of Christ]... How great God is! My peace of soul is the peace of one who expects nothing, no one; all that the soul hopes for in the world is to live united to his will, and the hope is a calm one, attended by peace in spite of the fact that the inability to see God yet is a grief, that tears are sometimes shed in taking the way of the Cross, and in seeing that we still have self-will, and in spite of the fact that with so many miseries, defects and sins, there is no respite from the burden of sorrow... Everything is strife and sorrow, but in the midst of it is Jesus nailed to a Cross, encouraging the soul to persevere; in the midst of the battle which we wage in the world is Jesus who with serene countenance tells us that" he who follows him does not walk in darkness " (Jn 8,12).
