Youth Time Alone with God

Woebearer began to protest, but Covenant cut him short. “Each night you return smiling and suffering to my house; each morning you rise refreshed and unburdened to plunge into the limitless pool of pain called Glory. But have you truly healed? Have you erased the agony and sent it away into the outer darkness forever? No. You have not. You have merely shifted the pain from the shoulders of the sufferers to your own. The mere transfer is noble, but falls far short of destruction and obliteration.

       “It is an ugly law: there is no healing without suffering. By the wounds of another we are healed; only if someone suffers for us can we find healing. Pain cannot be undone. It may only be carried by someone else, until it is all destroyed by the one who made possible the pain.

       “I heal the outside of you—nightly, and temporarily. When I heal the inside of you, it will be forever. But he who truly heals must drink the bitter brew that tastes like blood and death.

       “I have given you this command,” Covenant said, “and there is nothing else to say for now. If I thought you would understand the reasons I forbid you, I would tell you plainly. You have more power than you have wisdom. You see suffering as only an evil snake to be snuffed out wherever it is seen. It is a snake and it is evil, but it may sometimes be put to good use.”

Dan Hamilton, The Beggar King, p. 111 (1998)
