Today’s Reflection November 9

Without our suffering, our work would just be social work, very good and helpful, but it would not be the work of Jesus Christ, not part of the redemption. Jesus wanted to help us by sharing our life, our loneliness, our agony and death . . . We are allowed to do the same – all the desolation of the poor people, not only their material poverty, but their spiritual destitution, must be redeemed and we must have our share in it. Pray thus when you find it hard: “I wish to live in this world which is so far from God, which is turned so much from the light of Jesus, to help the poor, to take upon myself some of their suffering.”
– Mother Teresa of Calcutta
