Change Sadness into Joy: That’s Enough

VanI had for consolation only the thorns of suffering, and I had to make an effort to tell myself: I love suffering, insofar as it becomes suffering with joy… Keep at following your vocation, accept with joy all the humiliations and sadnesses that come; offer to the Beloved of your heart all the tears that fall during these difficult hours.

That’s enough.
Little Brother Marcel Văn CSsR (1928–1959)
