Father Leo’s Daily Meditation


SUFFERING

“Man cannot remake himself without suffering. For he is both the marble and the sculptor.”

-Alexis Carrel

I know that I have grown through my sufferings. I know that I am able to understand and forgive other people because I have been there, too. I know that I am patient and considerate because of my sufferings. My anguish keeps me “earthed”. It stops me from playing God; it teaches me the reality of life that life hurts! It is wonderful, joyous, loving and eventful, but it also hurts. For many years I hid my sufferings and pretended they were not there; the result was loneliness and hypocrisy.

God, may my sufferings keep me real.
