The Point of Suffering

Sometimes I think I would love to die a martyr for all the faithful, but then I have reservations about my endurance.  Christ’s horrid death made all that unnecessary, and for many Christians death is a piece of cake, as they say.  I thank the Lord for that.

Anyone who has contemplated the death of Jesus Christ must wonder how a man can endure all those details thought of by the Roman executors, or be considered insensitive.  I thank the Lord for including me in the benefactors.

While on earth, may I still consider offering my sufferings, inescapable as they are, for all of the faithful I have known and will know.
