The Wrath Of God Perfectly Explained

The wrath of God is the painful sensation we experience when we are being trained by Him. Through this painful experience of unsought sufferings God often abases and humbles an intellect conceited about its knowledge and virtue; for such sufferings make it conscious of itself and its own weakness.
St. Maximos the Confessor
"Third Century of Various Texts"
(The Philokalia)
