Suffering – who can escape it these days?
February 26, 2016 A.D.
Our Lady of Medjugorje said yesterday, February 25, 2016:
What does it mean for Our Lady to say “take the Cross”? A Friend of Medjugorje tells us:
“Suffering – who can escape it these days? It seems as an affliction upon us all. Yet, Our Lady says of this time:
December 25, 1995
“It seems somewhat of a contradiction to be in the time of grace and so many of Our Lady’s committed children are suffering. Yet, we have the lives of the saints who are faithful reproductions of Christ. Their lives were filled with crosses, trials and sufferings. Most want to unite themselves to Christ, but few wish to pay the price of doing so in completeness. Christ suffered, and the more you unite to Him, the more you will experience the same. Why? To unite with Christ is to turn against the ways of the world. The world, in turn, is not tolerant of your effort toward change and will hate and persecute you for it…”1
When you begin to change your life through Our Lady, She will form you into “Christ.” When your family, your best friend, even your priest turn against you, do not be surprised. It is part of the walk with Our Lady along Jesus’ path.*
