Fight the good fight of the faith … Take hold of the life eternal to which you have been called.              – 1 Tim 6:12

Reflection. In the mystical revelations of Bl. Henry Suso written in 1327, God said: “Do you not know that I wish only what is best for you, more earnestly than you do yourself?”

“If you were forever bathed in the heavenly dew of spiritual sweetness … this would not oblige Me to you nor make Me your debtor as does loving suffering or resignation in hardship.”

Prayer. Lord, I praise You for Your wisdom.  Help me to love the Cross and give me the wisdom to see suffering as a hidden blessing.
