Sufferings and the talk of sufferings can be wearisome, but only when they are not united to the Cross of our Lord. When they are united to His Cross, the burden becomes light. Reflect upon whether you understand this and live it. If you are living it you will find that your sufferings are no longer a heavy burden, they become a joy. Though it is hard to arrive at this level of surrender, it is your calling and the reward awaits.
Lord, may I never grow weary of offering You every pain and suffering I endure. When serious hardships come my way, help me to give them to You. When small discomforts come my way, help me to give them to You. I unite all things to Your glorious Cross, dear Lord, and trust in Your unfathomable power to transform them. Jesus, I trust in You.
