Minute Meditations

Suffering

  • In suffering we are tempted to lose hope and faith in the Lord’s love and in His desire for our eternal life with Him. But that same suffering can teach us, if we let it, to turn to God and place our hope and trust in Him
  • It is not God’s will that we should grieve and sorrow over our present sufferings, but rather that we should leave them at once and keep ourselves in his everlasting joy
  • The Good News of the Gospel is not that God came to take our suffering away, but that God wanted to become part of it.
  • If the God who became one of us saw the necessity of accepting weakness and suffering in order to be fully human, doesn't that tell us something about what we're meant to do?
  • Let me not pray to be sheltered from suffering but to be fearless in facing it. Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain but for the heart to conquer it
  • In times of sorrow and suffering, I can be thankful for the fact that I have loved and been loved, thankful, in fact, for the ability to grieve because grief witnesses to love.
