Life is good and beautiful just as it is, including its burden of suffering. When God created man and woman, he laid an immense blessing on every human life, and that blessing has never been withdrawn despite sin and all its consequences: “For the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable” (Romans 11:29) -especially the first gift and first call, that of life itself. Every life, even when subject to pain, is infinitely blessed and valuable.
-Fr. Jaques Philippe, Interior Freedom p.49
