Saturday of Our Lady

...Crosses are the most precious gifts God can give His creatures; and the creature's acceptance of them is the most pleasing sacrifice it can offer its Creator.

If the crosses He intends for you are heavy, that means He has great plans for your sanctification. Do you want to prevent those divine plans being fulfilled?

Your disturbance and fears will not take the crosses from you, whatever you do; you must carry them. What, then, is the wiser thing for you to do?

It is to submit, my child, to all that God bids you do. You must say: The Lord is master; Let Him do with me as He thinks best (Lk 1,38).

Then you will see God moved by your submission; faithful to His promises, He will make lighter than you thought possible the crosses which from a distance seem so heavy...
Imitation of Mary Bk II Chap. 8 No.

Peace be with you!
Rosemarie, ocds
