If I am to complain, let me complain to Jesus fastened on his cross. But in your presence, my Savior, what have I to complain of? What are my sufferings compared to those you bear without complaining? I might perhaps convince my fellow man that I am unjustly afflicted, but in your presence, Lord, I cannot, for my sins are known to you. You know my sufferings are far less than I deserve. And since all my afflictions proceed from you, to you I come; give me strength and hearten me to suffer in silence; as once you did yourself.
(a prayer of Claude de la Colombiere)
"Suffering is a kiss from Jesus."~Saint Mother Teresa of Calcutta
" If God gives you an abundant harvest of trials, it is a sign of great holiness which He desires you to attain. Do you want to become a great saint? Ask God to send you many sufferings. The flame of Divine Love never rises higher than when fed with the wood of the Cross, which the infinite charity of the Savior used to finish His sacrifice. All the pleasures of the world are nothing compared with the sweetness found in the gall and vinegar offered to Jesus Christ. That is, hard and painful things endured for Jesus Christ and with Jesus Christ." -Saint Ignatius of Loyola
"Always remember to love your neighbor; always prefer the one who tries your patience, who test your virtue, because with her you can always merit: suffering is Love; the Law is Love. -Bl Mary of Jesus Crucified "The Little Arab"
"If you really want to love Jesus, first learn to suffer, because suffering teaches you to love." -St. Gemma Galgani
"Suffering is the very best gift He has to give us. He gives it only to His chosen friends." -St. Therese of Lisieux
"She who desires peace must see, suffer and be silent." -St. Teresa Margaret
"Patience obtains everything." -St. Teresa of Avila
