If you are reviled for the Name of Christ, consider yourself blessed, for upon you rests the Spirit of glory and of God. - 1 Pet 4:14
Reflection. To have the Spirit of God resting on you is the greatest compliment you can receive. If it comes from someone who intends to punish you in some way for your beliefs, so be it. It is still a compliment.
Prayer. Father, help me to understand this mystery. Teach me how to accept my pain with courage, even as I seek healing and relief. I offer all my sufferings and humiliations in a spirit of reparation, and with the help of Your grace. I promise obedience and love.
