An Image of Suffering

Let us resolve to not burden those around us with our trials and sufferings. Let us instead pour ourselves out at the feet of Jesus, Mary and the saints. May we lean on God and not on our fellow man. May our small sufferings purify our souls of every sinful tendency... be for us the flames of purgatory here on earth. May the smouldering of my soul reach God as the smoke of incense, a sweet smelling sacrifice to the Lord. Amen+

What powerful words. I think we share our trails and sufferings with others to bring ourselfs comfort. What an excellent idea to try NOT to burden others...great idea...may the Lord help us.
