The Answer to "Why me?"

The Crucifixion of Christ (source)
"The answer to 'Why me?', to the sorrows that occur for you, are you yourself."
-St. Sophrony of Essex
"The greatest humility is for our nous to submit before the mysteries of God, and not to ask "how" and "why".
-Blessed Ierotheos of Hydra
"After our death, when we face Christ face to face, we will understand the 'why' and 'how' of our life, and He will explain to us everything that we passed through in that world. Then, with the whole strength of our being, we will tell Him: 'Thank you, my God, that You allowed those things to happen to me!'"
-St. Paisios the Athonite

Through the prayers of our Holy Fathers, Lord Jesus Christ our God, have mercy on us and save us! Amen!
