You may not think of this right now but it is through the examples of the saints that we will understand the gift of the cross that God has given each one of us. Please never look at your cross as a curse but a blessing, each day if you seek Our Lord in the journey, you will find the blessings your cross has in your journey of life. God our loving Father has a gentle plan that is strengthening us each day in our journey towards Heaven, remember HE loves you.
The post below has a link (please click the link in blue “LECTURE”) that I pray you will take time to listen to. St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, aka, Edith Stein, has so blessed me to understand the blessings of the cross, she is teaching me and I pray that she teaches you that your cross is truly a blessing. The ways we accept this blessing is taking our time for prayer and adoration with Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament and offering all to Jesus.
God bless you,
