Suffering Not a Sign of Deception
When praying in spirit, I heard these words from Jesus, “Whoever embraces me, embraces thorns.” He showed me that he, during His Most Holy Life here on earth, was always in the midst of the thorns of sufferings, labors, weariness, anguish, scorn, lies, sorrows, blows, nails, thorns, and the most bitter death on the Cross. Embracing Him, I must lead a life of suffering. With what joy my poor soul embraces this!
