Bartolomé Esteban Murillo – St Francis Embraces the crucified Christ
“If God sends you many sufferings, it is a sign that He has great plans for you and certainly wants to make you a saint.”
–St. Ignatius Loyola
From my journal September 7, 2016
All has passed through my hands. Why do you trust so little? Haven’t I shown you my love? Can you not feel how much I love you? Your suffering is redemptive. That bears more fruit than any action you can take. When you unite your suffering with Christ’s suffering there is so much power. Do not worry about things you cannot control. This world is passing away and all is well my little child. My plan is so much bigger than you. Have peace. Miracles will abound. Remain in Me and I will remain in you. Persecution will be short, endure. I will give you grace and strength. I AM with you.
