“Take up your cross and follow me”
We often think that suffering is not happiness but Jesus assures us that after the suffering there is happiness. In life, we could be suffering from different situations and decide to escape from those realities and from carrying our cross. Because of the gift of wisdom God has given to us, ignoring our cross will not resolve anything and we will be trapped on an endless cycle. In this season of lent, Jesus invites us to carry our cross. Jesus is pleased to help us and is willing to accept our burden. Let’s pick up our cross and start journeying with Jesus because He will assure us a journey full of love and happiness.
Holy Spirit, grant us the wisdom and fortitude to carry our cross that will lead us closer to Jesus
