Friends of the Rosary:
God the Father tested his dearly beloved Son like any other human ever has been challenged. Jesus Christ suffered a sorrowful passion that culminated with a death in the Cross. God knew his Son will endure. Now Jesus Christ is the King of the Universe and reigns gloriously forever.
Should we, humans, be tested? There is no Glorious Sunday without a Sorrowful Friday. The Cross that signals the suffering and the Resurrection is what makes us precious, invaluable. Each one of us will be tested sooner or later.
We need to be prepared — and the mysteries of the Holy Rosary are an excellent tool. Hard praying is what gives grace and wisdom to understand reality. The Devil will try to take advantage of our weakness to confuse us.
When that Via Crucis arrives, we should react calmly, give thanks, and offer our struggle in reparation of our offenses to God and for the conversion of sinners. And life will go on, with our souls a little bit more purified.
Jesus, I Trust In You!
