My Father, if this cup cannot pass away unless I drink it, Your Will be done.  – Mt 26:42

Reflection. These words were given in a private revelation to Bl. Henry Suso (1327):  “Suffering converts a worldly person into a heavenly person.  Suffering makes one a stranger to the world and gives him My continual intimacy.  It decreases friends and increases grace.”

Prayer. Father, I am repelled by the cross.  Help me to say the words Jesus said the night before He died:  If possible remove this cross from me, but not my will but Yours be done.
