I am holding on to Christ and His Cross

“If God causes you to suffer much, it is a sign that He has great designs for you, and that He certainly intends to make you a saint. And if you wish to become a great saint, entreat Him yourself to give you much opportunity for suffering; for there is no wood better to kindle the fire of holy love than the wood of the cross, which Christ used for His own great sacrifice of boundless charity.”  — St. Ignatius of Loyola

 

This is how I feel all the time as I wait for our dear Lord to free me from the debt and sell my house so I can finally enter Carmel and belong totally to Him completely, live with Him in silence and solitude.  For me, this is my suffering, my cross at this time.  But I have complete trust in Divine Providence that He will free me soon!
