Suffering and the ...


Little Way.
Boy, do I need some assistance with this! I'm a 'spoiled baby-boomer' who's not really had to deal with much suffering, either physical or other forms. The 'usual' amount that life tosses us, of course, and mostly from my own bad/sinful choices, but as I'm getting 'up in years' there are more physical things happening, that I'm trying to really offer up. Some days it's harder than others, (the offering up) but I do hope to grow in holiness and as we age, there are more and more opportunities to 'learn how.'

St. Therese, please pray for me, to be more humble, more forgiving of my family/friends and yes, myself, too. Help me to take every suffering, no matter how small, or how large to the feet of Jesus, to be pressed to my Blessed Mother's heart, as I give all to her, while I'm being raised up on that cross, to be with Jesus, to sacrifice whatever I'm asked to, for true love of Him, my Lord and Savior, who's given His ALL for me.

Be careful what you pray for. When you ask the Lord for humility, He gives you plenty of opportunity for practice. ;)
