'Some there are who seem astonished when they fancy that our good God has, in a certain sense, changed His mode of governing the world since the ancient times: for, in the latter He was wont to be called the God of armies, and He used to speak to the people out of clouds with bolts of thunder in His hands; for indeed, He punished crime with all the rigor of His justice. For one single adultery He put five-and-twenty thousand of the tribe of Benjamin to the sword. For an act of vainglory committed by David in making a census of his kingdom, He sent a terrible plague, which in a very short time swept off seventy thousand of the population. For one irreverent and incautious glance He slew fifty thousand of the Betsamites. And in these our times He tolerates not only vanities and frivolities, but adulteries the most sordid, scandals the most barefaced, nay, and the most frightful blasphemies which many Christians cast on His most holy Name.

How then do we account for all this? Why this difference in His mode of governing? . . .

The holy sacrifice of the Mass is the true and sole reason for such stupendous clemency, for in it we offer to the eternal father the great victim, Jesus Christ.'

'Today has been a very painful one to me. I have heard of the apostasy of one of my parishioners. My heart is pierced with sorrow. Lord Jesus, have mercy! Ah, permit not that any one of those whom Thou hast entrusted to me should be lost! O my Jesus, I will pray, fast, suffer, and with the help of Thy grace, sacrifice life itself! Lord, endue my words with power and unction that they may glorify the truth!'

St. John Neumann

'O Lord God, Heavenly Father, grant to my sick children a pure and heart-felt love of Thee! Give them contrition, patience, and, above all, heavenly aspirations.'

Is this DLynnA's Saint John Neumann? Smiley
I looked him up again yesterday just to refresh my memory. Quite a Saint. Very determined to serve God as a priest and as they say, where there is a will, there is always a way. He proved that to us. Smiley

If God sends you many sufferings, it is a sign that he has great plans for you and certainly wants to make you a saint.

Don't understand how to handle too many sufferings sometimes. So difficult. May God have mercy on us who struggle! crucifix

I know Patricia, it's really a hard thing. I'll feel guilty knowing so many suffer worse than I,Yet, the suffering is real. Sometimes I can offer it up, other times it overwhelms me, not so much the physical,for the most part my aches and pains are manageable, praise God. Here are a couple of quotes I like a lot.( forgive me none are by saints)

For we are like olives, only when we are crushed do we yield what is best in us.
The Talmud
With Thy very wounds, I will heal thee.
The Talmud
If you love, you will suffer. The only way to protect yourself against suffering is to protect yourself against love,
and that is the greatest suffering of all, loneliness

Those are some good quotes George.

I pray for your strength in suffering! And for us all, consolation and strength.  Cheesy

But, try not to quote from anything but the saints.

Neither Mark Twain or Peter Kreeft however entertaining, this place is not for them, simply the saints, it is theirs.
The Talmud has many blasphemes against Our Lord, besides being part of a false religion.

And it is good to avoid quotes that however helpful are from sources that are full of the opposite too, lest people wish to go refer to them and find both.

You're right. Sometimes it can be so overwhelming that even offering it up requires great effort.  Sad
