A spiritual director once told me that most of the times when you get angry is due to things not going as you think they should.  Many men in our culture are angry and frustrated with how recent events in our society have caused their career path and lives to make an about face.  The common thread that I am hearing is that things are not going to go back to what it was, so we need to adjust our lives to what it is and will be.

Redemptive Suffering is the path to Holiness and Happiness.  Since there is much reading material on this topic, I will refrain from creating overkill and just share these links with you:

Why are Catholics so into suffering? Isn’t Jesus about healing?

Scripture Catholic – SUFFERING

The Suffering Prayer Leaflet from TAN Books

 

Be sure to tell me what YOU think!  I read each and every comment.

  1. Thanks Frank for the opportunity to share my thoughts. I recently prayed a Novena to St. Peregrine for my cancerous tumor to be cured/removed. A few days ago I had an MRI, and the tumor is still there. Thanking God at all times and in all circumstances is not always easy but is very necessary if we are to grow in faith. After these past 6-7 years I have grown in my appreciation for the beauty of redemptive suffering. With God’s Grace I hope to continue to embrace my sufferings, and join them to the sufferings of Christ for the redemption of souls.
    God bless!
