In appreciation of struggles

DB_DSC7161 Crucifixion

Dream that the more you struggle, the more you prove the love that you bear your God, and the more you will rejoice one day with your Beloved, in a happiness and rapture that can never end. – Saint Teresa of Avila

The greater the struggle the deeper you love

The One who is your God, your Saviour

The greater the struggle the stronger you believe

The One who is your all in all

The greater the struggle the more you live

Abundantly

Joyfully

And strange as it may sound

Saints like St Teresa enjoy suffering

And offer them out of love for us all

Since the Lord allowed the suffering to come

May it be so that we learn this lesson

To embrace the pain

So as to grow in love

Strange as this may seem

That is the beauty of the Cross

After all our Saviour had to carry His on our behalf

To redeem us and to save us
