A Passionist Prayer
June 4, 2020
From St. Paul of the Cross
"All your trials and pains should be ground up together, adding to them acceptance and silence. Than make a pill of them with the balm of the Most Holy Passion of Christ. Swallow it with faith and love and digest it with the warmth of the love of Christ."
Lord, teach me the value of suffering. I try so hard to be bigger than my sufferings and trials, but my efforts are weak. What I really want is to be free of such difficulties, even though I know that is not realistic. Help me to make sense of the sufferings in my life as a part of your blessed will. Let me accept them and trust that such troubles have the ability to bring healing in my life and to allow me to grow closer to you.
