Friends of the Rosary:
We invoke the Communion of Saints — which comprises all of the saints, not only the officially declared — they can help us on our heroic mission of accepting the suffering of the Cross.
And while we model our lives in the imitation of Jesus and Mary, we offer our suffering to God in a ramson payment for our own sins and the sins of others.
In our struggle, we will end up experiencing the power of salvific suffering. Amazingly, we might rejoice in our sorrow, as St. Paul described in his letters.
In the light of the Cross and the Resurrection, we will understand that this source of strength and even joy comes from above. We pray today the Sorrowful Mysteries.
Jesus, I Trust In You!
