EXTRACT: I wish she had never been born. I wish she didn't have to live with me here. Lord, can you imagine how much better a nun I would be if I didn't have to deal with her? I could be so much more patient. I could be so much more generous. I could give more to the poor. I could give more to my father, if she weren't always talking, always stirring up feelings in my heart.

EXTRACT: Lord, I know you suffered. I want you to know that by suffering, by accepting your suffering, you were setting a precedent. Did you want to set a precedent? You made it possible for all suffering innocents who came after you to be silenced in your name. We were told that Christ suffered nobly, and we should, too. Was that your plan? If so, it's a terrible plan.
