Sometimes when we look at the lives of the Saints we can be tempted to think that God singled them out to suffer more than most. But maybe that suffering is actually a gift.
Today Fr. Mike shares with us how we must orient out lives towards the cross and keep Christ’s passion and death always before us so that when we encounter suffering we will have God’s strength to sustain us.
