Take My Suffering Lord!

crucifix with spirit.rev4

“Living the Mass means never wasting suffering but always being good stewards of the trials God give us. There is hardly anything so tragic in the world as wasted pain. Think of how much suffering there is in hospitals, among the poor and the bereaved! Think how much of that suffering goes to waste. How many, or rather how few, of those lonesome, suffering, abandoned, crucified souls are saying with our Lord at the moment of Consecration: ‘This is my body, take it’.”

  1. Ahh! Living the Consecrated Life…we are all called to it. The place where I see the most wasted suffering is in nursing homes! It is such a mission field. Society, the world could be transformed completely through those precious souls.
