Elisabeth Elliot, on Paul, on suffering

[Suffering] is never useless, but can, by grace, bless others.  It has eternal ramifications when we are willing to receive it in faith.  In every task assigned to us we become helpers in a great mystery which [Paul] calls the completion of the “tale.”  Our help affects the body of Christ (the Church) and therefore, by extension, the whole world. (Path of Loneliness, p. 130)
