He wants us to suffer30 March 2018
Take up your cross and know that, whatever you suffer is known to God. As a loving Father, He tries in every way to shape Jesus Christ within us. He wants us to suffer because He knows what He’s prepared in heaven for His suffering children, But if He doesn’t send them sorrows, that’ll be unfair to them because they’ll be deprived of the ineffable good things of heaven. The more we suffer, the more beautiful is the garland of glory that’s woven for us.
