He Chose Suffering

Through God’s unfailing grace, our sorrows become easier to bear. In His divine plan, our sufferings can be sanctified. It can purify us, draw us closer to Him and make us stronger instruments in sanctifying the world. Christ Himself chose suffering as the divine means of saving mankind. We should pray, therefore, for the courage that can only come from Him who died for our sins. By looking at sorrow as a blessing in disguise, we shall regard it not as a sign of failure but as small prices to pay for the everlasting peace and joy of heaven.”
