Which Struggles Are We Supposed to Endure?

Father Mark-Mary and Brother Isaiah of the CFRs continue with their series about struggles. Last week, they spoke about the value of struggling, and the week before Brother Isaiah shared the story of a donkey that has served as an inspiration for the series. In this video, they address those who are struggling, and encourage them to ask the question, “Is it the right struggle?”

The friars emphasize the fact that a struggle is less difficult when someone compassionately accompanies you in it. Brother Isaiah also encourages us to be still, because by doing so we can more easily see God at work.
