The Value of Suffering

Who wants suffering?  You know you are in the presence of a holy person when he embraces suffering, almost joyfully. Padre Pio said “If you knew the value of suffering, you would never give it up.”   Suffering has so much spiritual value, we do not comprehend it sometimes . . .  We talk about the suffering cancer causes.  Is it possible God allows it to bring persons closer to Him?  You consider praying when you are really sick!
