'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

From Saints quotes:

'Let us imagine our confusion when we appear before God and understand the reasons why He sent us the crosses we accept so unwillingly. The death of a child will then be seen as its rescue from some great evil had it lived, separation from the woman you love the means of saving you from an unhappy marriage, a severe illness the reason for many years of life afterwards, loss of money the means of saving your soul from eternal loss. So what are we worried about? God is looking after us and yet we are full of anxiety! We trust ourselves to a doctor because we suppose he knows his business. He orders an operation which involves cutting away part of our body and we accept it. We are grateful to him and pay him a large fee because we judge he would not act as he does unless the remedy were necessary, and we must rely on his skill. Yet we are unwilling to treat God in the same way! It looks as if we do not trust His wisdom and are afraid He cannot do His job properly. We allow ourselves to be operated on by a man who may easily make a mistake -- a mistake which may cost us our life -- and protest when God sets to work on us.'

Thank you! Cheesy

'The glory of one who knows how to suffer is so great that Heaven, angels and men, and even God Himself, gaze on him with joy as a most glorious sight. And if the saints in Heaven desired anything, it would be to return to earth so as to bear some crosses.'

Thank you Shin, this quote brought a tear to my eye. To have such faith is to be hoped and prayed for.

Earthly riches are like the reed. Its roots are sunk in the swamp, and its exterior is fair to behold; but inside it is hollow. If a man leans on such a reed, it will snap off and pierce his soul.
