With Jesus during the day
“Let us learn from Jesus and Mary to embrace the crosses, because without them we cannot live in this world” (St. Alphonsus Ligouri). The one who accompanied all the sufferings of Jesus without understanding why he suffered so much at the hands of men, is the same one who accompanies us in our sufferings and tribulations, especially when we are tested. I look at Mary and ask for her intercession, confident that she knows what my pains are and as a Mother wants to comfort me. She even goes further than that by presenting my supplications to Jesus, so that I can receive the necessary graces I need in each situation.
