"who understands the choice of those whom God takes to the divine self early? Does it not seem to us again and again in the early deaths of Christians as though God were robbing the divine self of God's best instruments at a time when God needed them most? But God makes no mistakes. Does God perhaps need our brothers and sisters for some hidden service for us in the heavenly world? We should restrain our human thoughts, which always seek to know more than they can, and keep to what is certain. God has loved anyone whom God has called. 'For his soul was pleasing to the Lord, therefore he took him quickly from the midst of wickedness' (Wisd. of Sol. 4:14)." -Dietrich Bonhoeffer
