He sends  griefs and afflictions to those He loves and to help them detach. I need strength  to read this quote.  sweat drop A trifle scary!

Sometimes I think of myself as a remedial student taking the same lesson over and over again until I finally get it right.  popeyes

Thank God, He hasn't given up me! Cheesy

You're right Shin! Many a time I've felt I did not pass through a trial right , but He is still by my side after it all.  ( With another trial to help me practice better Grin)
For example, with my job and the terrible management and co-workers. Sometimes I think I should have stuck it out and offered it all up. But at that moment I was completely stressed out and quit.  Undecided  I pray God sees my weaknesses and is merciful!  crucifix

I think you did the right thing Patricia. That place was more than too tough!

Sometimes it's not the destination, but it's the journey, and we're only meant to stop off at some places as wayposts, to learn a little, then move on!

 Grin You certainly showed some courage there!

The only way I can handle grief and afflictions is with prayer and consolation from God! I lack a lot of virtue in regards to fortitude and bearing things properly! God help me!

So true.
It's only through prayer and faith that I can overcome the helplessness I feel when confronted by some of life's heaviest burdens.
I guess through prayer and love even little shoulders can bear heavy crosses.

There's nothing like God's consolation while carrying the cross, is there?

If God gives you an abundant harvest of trials, it is a sign of great holiness which he desires you to attain. Do you want to become a great saint?
Ask God to to send you many sufferings. The flame of Divine Love never rises higher than when fed with the wood of the cross, which the infinite charity of the Savior used to finish His sacrifice. All pleasures of the world are nothing compared with the sweetness found in the gall and vinegar offered to Jesus Christ. That is, hard and painful things endured for Jesus Christ and with Jesus Christ.

Sometimes it's only in hindsight we can see the benefits of such crosses.
You were very brave Patricia.

St. Ignatius of Loyola

Sometimes while meditating on the Passion of Our Lord, it seems as if the Lord is inviting one to suffer with Him. I can never bring myself to ask Him to send me suffering; the best I can muster is to ask for the grace and courage to accept without complaining, those trials that come along each day.  Embarrassed

It is difficult, it's a thing I pray over daily, accepting rather than embracing those crosses, I find offering up the suffering is doable though it is a struggle at times, but I find my prayer life grows richer and that's a blessing, maybe someday I'll find the courage to embrace rather than just accept.

God is more pleased by one work, however small, done secretly, without desire that it be known, than a thousand done with desire that men know of them.

St. John of the Cross

That's a quite inspiring quote George, thank you for it.


'In God's sight, our cross is as a precious balm which loses its aroma on exposure to the air; therefore we must make every effort to hide our cross and carry it in silence.'

St. Margaret Mary Alacoque

I know sometimes we need help carrying the cross from our friends though. Cheesy But we must also beware of being rewarded for our crosses in this life rather than the next!

A tiny spark of God's love already burns within you, do not expose it to the wind, for it may get blown out.
Stay quiet with God. Do not spend your time in useless chatter.
Do not give yourself to others so completely that you have nothing left for yourself.
St. Charles Borromeo
