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.

O Mother of Sorrows, as thy children, we are most at home with thee at the foot of the cross. Give every moment of our sufferings to our crucified Saviour that He may count our pains with His. Make us trust all to Him, and some day we shall see how good and tender He has been to us to give us the thorny crown.

Does our life become from day to day more painful, more oppressive, more replete with sufferings? Blessed be He a thousand times who desires it so. If life be harder, love makes it also stronger, and only this love, grounded on suffering, can carry the Cross of my Lord, Jesus Christ.
I believe, O Lord, but strengthen my faith,
Heart of Jesus, I love Thee, but increase my love.
Heart of Jesus, I trust in Thee,but give greater vigour to my confidence.
Heart of Jesus, I give my heart to Thee,but so enclose it in Thee that it may never be separated from Thee.
Heart of Jesus, I am all Thine,but take care of my promise so that I may be ableto put it in practice even unto the complete sacrifice of my life.

Most glorious Martin de Porres, whose burning charity embraced not only thy needy brethren, but also the very animals of the field, splendid example of charity, we hail thee and invoke thee! From, that high throne which thou dost occupy, deign to listen to the supplications of thy needy brethren that, by imitating thy virtues, we may live contented in that state in which God has placed us and carrying with strength and courage our cross, we may follow in the footsteps of Our Blessed Redeemer and His most afflicted Mother, that at last we may reach the Kingdom of Heaven through the merits of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

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

Even on the night before Our Blessed Lord and Saviour died, just after the apostles had received the first Eucharist they preferred sleep to His company. He underwent purification for them, suffering the pain of pure love, not because He had no other choice, as those of us who wind up in Purgatory, but because He willed to undergo pain and suffering so that we might be delivered from that necessity … and worse.…The apostles slept through Our Lord’s agony and we sleep through the agony of the poor souls.
