The Cross the Key to Suffering Gladly but Not All At Once

Stations of the Cross: Our Lady of Lourdes, Bangsaen, Thailand

Obviously, you are not expected to set out fully prepared and knowing to perfection how to take suffering. No one can know this until he has been aught by our Lord himself, sometimes through the experience of an entire lifetime… We must simply have clearly understood the meaning of the Cross in our life, and have generously and gladly consented to let Jesus take us into his work with him. We must be ready, in our souls, to accept suffering and to learn to comprehend its significance and to come little by little to love it.
René Voillaume (1905–2003)
