Real love.

How sweet it is that we suffer with and for Jesus. My soul truly rejoices. The cup is at first bitter, but in it there is an unknown delight for those who truly love.

signum-crucis:

I have had a great many very hard trials, my Father,… but you will of course congratulate me on them as this fire of tribulation is no doubt meant to consume the many imperfections and bad dispositions our Lord finds in me. Indeed it has at times burnt so deep that the anguish could not be concealed, but by degrees custom reconciles pain itself, and I determine, dry and hard as my daily bread is, to take it with as good grace as possible. When I carry it before Our Lord sometimes He makes me laugh at myself and asks me what other kind I would choose in the valley of tears than that which Himself and all His followers made use of.
—St Elizabeth Ann Seton, in a letter written to Archbishop John Carroll during her trials and tribulations as Superior

Amen.
