We offer prayer support and comfort to the brokenhearted who suffer the pains of infertility at any stage of life, difficult pregnancy, miscarriage, stillbirth, the loss of a child and the adoption process.
The reality that surrounds us is exhausting, turn to the Good Shepherd where HIS yoke is easy and HIS burden light.
28 “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.”
This morning before Mass I was looking through the “Magnificat” and I noticed the meditation being offered for the day was about carrying our own personal cross. Wow, this is not easy! I realize that there is nothing I can say to take away the suffering that you may be enduring. I do know that through times of my own suffering it is good to share your pain and learn to turn it into a positive. Just keep asking Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, “What do you want of me?” Ask, and it shall be given you: seek, and you shall find: knock, and it shall be opened to you. Matthew 7:7
The one thing I do know because of this beautiful faith that I (you) have been given in the Catholic Church (universal Christian Church) is that we have been given Christ Jesus who suffered for us. He is our example of suffering and his mother is our example of the offering. What a great gift we have in our faith! There is no where else that we can go to find peace in our sufferings except in Christ Jesus and his Mother. Speak to Our Lady through the prayers of the holy rosary, she will guide you.
I found a book today by C. S. Lewis, that might help those that love to read, work through the pain of your own cross.
