Suffering is an eternal gold mine. It is a flaming dart shot by Love from the Heart of the Infinite to inflame the human heart and plunge it into the Divinity. The Cross! It is a dazzling scepter of the Incarnate Wisdom, the co-redeeming jewel of the Immaculate Virgin, the radiant palm of the Blessed.
If only we knew the amount of love contained in each of our crosses, we would hold this infinite treasure in such high esteem that day and night without ceasing, we would offer ardent prayers to God to obtain suffering, and rapturous prayers of thanksgiving when it was granted to us...Oh how happy is Jesus to hear one single grateful word of appreciation when He offers us a thorn from His crown or a few drops from His bitter chalice!
Look on every suffering and joy as sent directly by Jesus and your life will be an uninterrupted communion, because everything will be a sacrament sent by God.
