As we enter more deeply into this season of Lent, let’s pray to God that he might grant us the grace to follow him to the Cross, whatever the Cross might be in our lives. Let us pray for the grace to do the hard thing, because it is in these little sufferings and sacrifices that we will find our closeness to Jesus and our salvation.
Jesus performed miracles that we might believe in him.
God never promises us that we will not have to suffer. But he does promise to save us and to suffer with us.
