Vicarious Suffering

Jesus living within us unites our suffering to his and transforms it so that it benefits others and contributes with his to the salvation of the world.
(I'm sorry that I still can't get some beautiful autumn scenery to attach to this blog.)

Still Striving

I'm ok, but haven't yet figured out how to get a picture on the blog.

St. Therese of Lisieux

Her autobiography had a great impact on me when I read it 60 years ago.  It seems to me that her "Little Way" is right for our age: "Jesus does not demand great actions from us, but simply surrender and gratitude.  He has no need of our works, but only our love."
(Blame windows 10 again.  I can't figure out how I added yesterday's picture.)
