I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us. - Romans 8:18
St Paul teaches us that our heaviest burdens of suffering are far outweighed by the glory that awaits us 2Co. 4:17.
Though the afflictions of our time on earth are inescapable, the Spirit helps to make them bearable.
Suffering is all part of God’s plan to mold us into the image of Christ. (Scott Hahn, Ignatius Study Bible NT, Rm 8:18)
Praying with Padre Pio in suffering.
"The cross does not oppress you if its weight makes you falter
His power - its power - will lift you up; raise you." - Padre Pio
