"Things are not the way God originally made them. Thorns are growing in earth's plowed fields; a disease has fallen on her flowers; there is mildew on her grain. The heavens weep and saturate our harvests; the depths of the earth move and shake out cities with earthquakes. Frequent tragedies and disasters foreshadow a great future that will be born as a result of these labour pains."
