Lenten Reflection

 “The sufferings of this world are as nothing in comparison with the joys of heaven.” (5th Counsel)

 How in tune St. Angela was with the suffering and passion of our Lord, Jesus. Her life centered on deepening her love relationship with Jesus, and to know Jesus, was to know how he suffered for our sake. She often implored us through the “passion and Blood or our Lord” to respond and to act. Angela, in her own prayer, regretted not having shed her own blood for Jesus.

 Today’s world is filled with suffering and shedding of blood; the passion of Jesus lives on in the lives of so many people throughout the world who are seeking signs of hope for a better worldly life. Yet many of these same people have a faith far stronger and deeper than our own because we tend to take so much for granted.

 During this season of Lent we move through the darkness to new light. We move through some of our personal suffering in hopes of a better tomorrow.

 Mother Teresa once said, “The joy of loving Jesus comes from the joy of sharing in His sufferings. So do not allow yourself to be troubled or distressed, but believe in the joy of the Resurrection. In all of our lives, as in the life of Jesus, the Resurrection has to come, the joy of Easter has to dawn.”
