Feeling weak under the heavy weight of your cross today?
Cardinal Timothy Dolan wrote: “The Cross is the classroom of sanctity, the professor of perfection, the arena of heroic virtue!”
Never forget that God gave you this particular cross because He knows it will transform you – if you allow it to happen. Complaining about your circumstances is normal and easy, but greeting the day with a smile despite the pain is noble and a great example for those who encounter you.
No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it (1 Corinthians 10:13).
