Sharing our sufferings
Good morning to all of my Parish Families and Friends,
Autumn came one week early and God has given us another wonderful day to share with each other. In today's scripture passage (Jn 19: 25-27), Jesus tells his Mother and beloved apostle, John, to take care of one another.
Mary and John are standing at the foot of the Cross sharing in the sufferings of Christ.
The key is that they trust in Jesus and share in His sufferings together.
They are not alone.
God calls you and me each day to unite our joys and suffering to the Cross. By doing this we open the gateway to sharing in Jesus' Resurrection.
As we go about our business today, let us lift one another up in our own joys and sufferings. We can do this with a simple smile or friendly gesture. Give someone that boost they need and you just might be able to turn their sufferings into joy :)
Have a great day!
