27 November Reflection Quote

"If every day our heart is purified by suffering, then the divine Master, finding no further hinderance to his union with the purified soul, willidentify himself with her!" - Madeleine Sophie Barat, Letter 12 to Felicie de Gregueuil, 1859

It is natural to seek to avoid suffering yet sometimes suffering is unavoidable. At other times it is necessary to embrace suffering as a consequence of being true to our values and beliefs.

– in what ways has suffering brought you closer to others, or to God?
– how might suffering purify one’s heart?
– have you had a sense of God’s solidarity in a time of suffering?
