Gifts in This World

At Our Lady of Perpetual Help Minor Seminary in Sriracha, Thailand

All kinds of sorrow, insults, and persecutions, even to death on the Cross: this is what You gave the One whom You loved above all others. As long as we are in this world, these are Your gifts. You proportion them according to Your love for us. You give more to those You love more, less to those You love less. You also give according to the courage You find in each of us and according to our love for You, for if we love You much, we shall be able to suffer much for You, but if we love You only a little, we will suffer little.
Saint Teresa of Jesus
