AdoroTeDevote: "You have to Suffer for What You Love"
This is a uniquely Catholic theme, and one that makes me SOO glad I'm a Catholic.
One day, Fulton Sheen was walking past a hospital and remarked, "What a shame. So much wasted suffering." Catholics know how to "make up what is lacking in the sufferings of Christ". What could be lacking in the sufferings of Christ? Our offerings of the daily barbs, and lifelong deprivation, the suffering of illness, and the ache of loneliness. Don't waste them. Offer them up for the salvation of all those relatives who are going to call you a religious fanatic this Thanksgiving!
