The purpose of obstacles

St. Therese of Lisieux suffered physically.

Blessed Mother Teresa suffered spiritually.

St. Teresa of Avila had to deal with...well...people.

All three of these women could have complained. They could have asked questions like, "why me?"

But they didn't.

Instead, they recognized the obstacles that stood in their way for what they are: launching points to holiness.
