“You should feel at home with sufferings that it pleases Jesus to send you, since you always have to live with them. Acting thus you think less of being freed from them. Jesus who cannot suffer long to keep you in affliction will come to relieve and comfort you by infusing fresh courage into your soul.” St. Padre Pio Every marathon runner knows the value of hydration and gu energy packs during a race; you simply cannot finish with it.
