Suffering, who wants it?  You know when you’re in the presence of a true holy person when he embraces suffering, almost joyfully. Padre Pio said “if you knew the value of suffering, you’d never give it up”.   The purpose of suffering, and “taking up your cross” has so much spiritual value, we truly don’t comprehend it sometimes . . .  We talk about cancer and the suffering it brings.  Is it possible cancer is allowed by God, and  persons will benefit from the illness to bring them closer to God?  When you are really sick, what is the first thing you think about? It’s praying to get well!

The video is simple, brilliant and inspiring.
