I rejoice when I endure weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and distress for the sake of Christ.  For it is when I am weak that I am strong.  - 2 Cor 12:10

Reflection.  In some mysterious way, because we are intimately united with the heart of God; we are in touch with all the agony, pain, torture, and misery in the world.

Prayer.  Dear Lord, You suffer with every one who suffers.  Thank You for helping me to carry my cross.
